There is a pin header labeled J2 soldered into the board already that you can connect to. Looking at the board, when the reset button is facing up, J2 is located close to the “golden square” in the center of the board, straight below the reset button. It is a 4 pin header aligned vertically with the pins being:

  • VCC 3.3V
  • GND
  • TX (devolo transmits here)
  • bottom: RX (devolo receives here)
