Inspired from Paul of OWFS's idea
His Schematic is very wrong. Do not copy it.
Bill of Materials:
You should have some left over from the TTL to RS232 board
Prepare you board by cleaning the contacts for the DS2480b? with a cotton swap and some alcohol.
Next take a new cotton swap and apply some flux to contacts, too much is better than too little.
At this point the flux is sticky. Place the DS2480b? on the contacts, carefully line up everything. Take your soldering iron and tack down one of the pins. Using the tip of the soldering iron, heat up both the contact pad and the pin of the DS2480b? at the same time. It should take about a couple of seconds, anything more than 30 seconds is too long. Once heated you can put the solder to the pin and pad. If done right, capillary action will draw the solder under the pin and on to the pad.
Make sure everything is still lined up and finish soldering the remaining pins.
The 1-Wire Pins typically go to a RJ11? Phone Jack, you can just jumper the pins to a wall jack to route the jack outside of the router. Most people usually build their 1 wire networks with X for 1 jacks that they split off the Phone Jack box.
