    Getting console work in linux (kernel 3.13.0-24-generic #46-Ubuntu)

      It took a while but now l can connect to wiced wifi through /dev/ttyUSB1.


      First you need to install ftdi drivers in linux. Search for libftdi1.

      apt-get install libftdi1

      Then, you need to install the driver:

      modprobe ftdi_sio

      The "vendor" and "product" option does not work anymore, don't bother to use them. This is where I got stuck. New kernel have a different way of specifying vendor and product.


      Instead, use:

      echo 0a5c 43fa > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/ftdi_sio/new_id

      Now, /dev/ttyUSB1 device should be available. You can connect using minicom:

      minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB1 -s

      Make sure hardware or software flow control is "off".


      My /etc/udev/rules.d/67-wiced-JTAG.rules looks like:

      # udev rules file for WICED USB JTAG interface, to allow use by non super-users 
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0a5c", ATTR{idProduct}=="43fa", GROUP="emre", MODE="0666"
      SUBSYSTEM=="usb-serial", DRIVERS=="ftdi_sio"
