Are there three dongles there? Try the other ones.

If there isn't, you need to figure out the correct pin connection.

Re: serial port console question

What type of terminal are you using?

What are the terminal settings?

Re: serial port console question

My psychic powers are too weak to tell me
what "my console" is, or to what it's
connected, or how.

Does "able" in "able to type anything there"
really mean "unable"? Does that mean that
you hit keys, but you don't see your
characters echoed back? Or was your keyboard
stolen? Or what?

You've checked the cable? You've checked
your terminal (emulator?) (and cable) on some
other device/system?

Perhaps it would help if you described your
equipment in more detail. (More than none,
that is.)
