Hi Guys,

Im trying to reflash an alfa board.

When connecting by putty, all iam getting is a blank screen with a cursor and not the boot menu. I have set baud rate to 115200, no flow control, no parity, databits to 8 and stop bits to 1. I have also confirmed the COM port under device manager and set the baud rate in device manager to 115200.

I have installed the drivers for the usb-serial adaptor and confirmed its been assigned a COM port.

Im using an AR9331 board and a USB to TTL UART RS232 Serial Converter Module PL2303HX.

The board is being powered by wall.

The only odd thing, is there is no LED light when powered on. Given this was ordered from an "authorised alfa vendor" in china and packaged in nothing but a single layer of bubble wrap, im guessing its a dud?

Any ideas?

No lights?

Could be the power supply, but yes, most likely a dud.
