Right Angle Header for Hacked Asus Router Serial Port

Buried somewhere in the comments in the mightyohm forum is a suggestion to use right angle headers instead of straight ones for the serial port. This allows a shorter connection.

If you make the adapter board for the FTDI cable as Jeff Keyzer suggests in the mightyohm.com wifi radio build instructions, keep the PCB/perfboard small. You can then still insert it over a right angle header.

Alternatively, you can connect the serial port to the FTDI cable with female-to-male jumpers (available at sparkfun for example).
