    All WRT54G Motherboards just have the holes. you have to solder the serial connection onto it.

    I have also bricked my wrt54gl.
    I can put the connector on for a JTAG cable, but as you can see in the attached pictures, on the wrt54g, there are some resisters in line with the pins, but on my wrt54gl there are none.
    Can I just connect them straight through, and put resisters in my JTAG cable?
    I tried connecting straight across the pads that are there, but for some reason this is causing all the data pins to be connected to eachother, what gives?

    any idea's?
    anyone done this on a wrt54gl?
