None of the 6 header pins should be shorted together.


this is in fact the FTDI that I have, the Ardweeny has header pins that this guy should plug directly into the board powers up fine (led running the blink sketch which comes preloaded on it. I have reloaded the FTDI drivers, tried a different USB with the same results. Also I am running Windows XP. I am at a loss here.
