Do you have a console cable lying around that I can borrow or buy? Or would you be happy to create a new Edgerouter os on a pen drive that I can purchase? 


My Edgerouter Lite died recently, and I found this is uncommon due to bad flash drives they put inside these routers. After reading on GZ, a console cable seems essential to bring my Edgerouter back to life.


I know these are available on TM and I am trying my luck here first. Please let me know if you happen to have one unused or you are kind enough to create a new os for me to purchase.


Many thanks

Is it one of those annoying console cables that use a RJ-45 connector, like the Cisco stuff? I've got a RJ-45 to USB Serial cable thing (RJ-45 connector on one end, USB on the other with an integrated RS-232-to-USB adapter) that I'm not really using, $5 plus postage and it's yours, or if by coincidence you live in Hamilton, $5 and pickup its yours

@GeekRay, what's your location? I'm in Palmy and have a USB-RJ45 Serial console cable you're welcome to borrow if you're in the area.
