I got a Micronet sp913 hotspot router from the local recycle shop its from a backpackers the problem is i need to factory reset it but I have to go in through terminal to do a reset. The port is a RJ11 I think. Is there a cable available to access this through terminal ? or another way in there any pointers much appreciated

I cant find any specs for the pinout, so your likely to have to experiment. Worth taking the cover off and seeing if the tx/rx/gnd etc is silkscreened on the board.

Use something like this (cheaper versions exist on TradeMe, DX, etc)

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
