Serial Breakout cable problem

 I have been trying to create my own serial breakout adaptor but am having no sucess.

The scale i have been following is base on the link shared in the achived post.


This is what i have done. Just wondering if i have misunderstood the way how it should be linked or something went wrong


** i am unable to power the AP up with this format but the AP works fine with just a cable linked to the power injector.

Does anyone have any idea ? I know that the design works just that i might have screwed up the cabling. Does the color coding matter in this case ?


Does anyone have a working design and is able to share with me the color connection ?
