Sep 16, Posts: I’m not sure why, but I had it in my head that my console cable DB9 was a bit odd, like it had an extra shroud or something on it, thus making it not mate properly with the Keyspan. Wed May 11, 4: Wed May 04, 7: The blue console cables are about as generic as you can get on the DB9 side, nothing crazy. A lot more reliable and actually a real device on the computer rather than a USB chipset – Ethernet serial server.

MCS7720 — USB 1.1 to Dual Serial Controller
Tue May 03, I downloaded new drivers from FTDI, plugged the cable in, Windows automatically installed it, I updated the drivers, fired up the software and bam, worked like a charm.
I have the Keyspan as well. Their stuff is awesome.

The other reason being, as mentioned the Keyspan is “shrouded”. Formerly an orchard – Sunnyvale, CA Registered: Tue May 03, 6: Aug 31, Posts: GUCA with the newest drivers from them, works with everything, always has, no glitchyness. I’m a Cisco engineer so am always in serial consoles.

Tue May 03, 5: After 3 hours dicking around with different versions of drivers for the USB adapters, thinking there was something goofy going on with my laptop, I said screw it and took one of the signs home. The keyspan works fine with Mischip console cables.

The RS isb doesn’t work at all, the IO Gear is heavily glitchy and the Cables-to-Go version seems to have a pretty decent success, though it has glitches here and there.
Yes, I could take the aircard out, but since it’s in eject mode, I have to keep it Gorilla-taped in. I’m putting in another Newegg order anyhow, so I figured just add it on.

Does anyone know of a USB > RS232 adapter that DOESN’T suck under Win7/64?
That way, if the cable fits it works. Wed May 25, 3: Never had a problem. Something broke inside and it will no longer retain whatever card you put in it, it’s in “constant eject” mode, if you will. The same drivers installed on a nearly identical machine worked fine.
