Okay. So, I have bricked mine (tl-wr841n). I read this post, and got myself a dku-5 but it only has 3 wires (blue, red, orange). I found this pdf (http://www.neolics.com/pdfs/dku-5.pdf), which says that the one with the highest voltage will be the tx (blue). The orange is ground, and that leaves the red to be rx. When I connect with this arrangement, it shows me a blank black screen. Any other combination gives a somewhat half-eligible and half-gibberish output, but either hangs my computer, or gives me a blue screen of death.
I went looking for a Ca42 (as it unbricked omiez's) in our local market, but couldn't find it. Because of my location and budget, internet shopping websites (eBay, Amazon, etc.) are out of the question.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, because I am a newbie to electronics and am completely lost.
Edit: The blue wire gives out reading 3.5 volts, the red dances around from 0.24 to 0.28
