Connecting the Flyswatter2 and the RouterStation Pro

To hook up the Flyswatter2 and the RouterStation Pro, you will need:

  • Flyswatter2
    • 20-pin ARM to 14-pin MIPS JTAG Adapter Board
    • USB Male A/Male B Cable
    • 14-pin JTAG Ribbon Cable
  • RouterStationPro
    • RS-232 Serial Cable with two female connectors
    • CAT6 Cable
    • Power Over Ethernet Injector (with power cable)


The items listed under RouterStationPro are included with the MIPS Linux Starter Kit.

Connect the MIPS JTAG Adapter Board to the Flyswatter2.

The 14-pin end of the adapter board should face up toward the top of the board, as in the picture.


Connect the 14-pin ribbon cable to the Adapter Board.

The ribbon cable should have a notch on the connector to force it into the correct position. If it doesn't, make sure to align Pin 1 as shown in the image to the left. (Pin 1 is on the side of the cable with the red stripe.)


Connect the Other End of the Ribbon Cable to the RouterStation Pro.

Again, be sure to align the red stripe with Pin 1, as shown in the picture. Pin 1 is toward the outer edge of the board. It is also marked on the bottom of the RouterStation Pro.


Connect the RS-232 Serial Cable.

Connect the cable as shown in the picture.


Connect the USB Cable to the Flyswatter2.

Connect the Male B adapter to the Flyswatter 3. (The Male B end is the squarish end, not the flat end.)


Connect the CAT6 Cable to the Power Over Ethernet Injector.

Leave the boards alone for now. Find the Power Over Ethernet Injector in the MIPS Linux Starter Kit, and connect the CAT6 cable. The PoE injector has two ethernet ports, but only one supplies power. Be sure to use the correct one. The correct ethernet port is labeled.


Connect the Power Adapter to the Power Over Ethernet Injector.

Connect the power cable to the other side of the PoE injector.


Connect the Other End of the CAT6 Cable to the RouterStation Pro.

Connect the CAT6 cable to the RouterStation Pro's Power Over Ethernet port. Warning: The RouterStation Pro has three ethernet ports in addition to the PoE port. Connecting the PoE injector to one of the regular ethernet ports may damage the board. The PoE port is the closest to the center of the board, to the right of the three ethernet ports as shown in the picture. It is labeled POE on the board.


Plug the Power Adapter into a Wall Outlet.

The green LEDs on the RouterStation Pro should briefly flash, and the leftmost LED should remain on.

Plug the USB Cable into your PC.

The green power LED on the Flyswatter2 should come on and remain on.
