Try switching around the TX and RX.

hello guys i did what u told me now im getting some outout but in gibberish even that im using UTF8... is a Putty font problem or something?>?????

Any ideas ????

thanks 4 the patiance with us.. the newbiessss

Sounds like your using a standard Serial adapter. Not UART. The Pineapple's serial isn't standard serial, it uses UART, to use UART you need a level shifter. Most people go with the USB TTY UART Board that has the CP2102 chip.

im using the:

RS232 Serial Port To TTL Converter Module w/ Transmitting and Receiving Indicator - Blue

- Color: Blue
- Material: Glass fiber
- Model: 03100098
- Chip: MAX3232
- Voltage: 3.3V/5V
- Great for microcontroller development
- WRT / NDS 4 / Cell phone / Satellite TV reset
- Data transmitting (TX) and receiving (RX)
- Packing list:
- 1 x Module
- 4 x DuPont cable (length: 21cm)

not good??????????

Like I said. It is not UART. Get a USB to UART, like the one Tyler linked.
