    Hi everybody,

    I've made a serial mod to my wrt54gs and i want to get nmea packets from my gps,but i've got pbs...
    On my home pc it's working well (I changed my baud rate with stty -F /dev/tts/0 ispeed 4800 to synchronize) but on the wrt when I enter the same and cat>/dev/tts/0 I got nothing...
    I'm trying to send gps data from a mobile with a hacked version of gpsd wich send a http request to a server...
    so I wrote the code, works well on a computer but still the same on the wrt : nothing ! like i've got no data incoming (impossible cause I disconnected the gps from the serial hack and plug it on my pc and got nmea packets ! )
    Someone has an idea ???

    so your getting PBS instead of NMEA? :)
    all joking aside, are you able to send serial data to it at that baudrate from a computer?
