I just bought a 1800 series router and a 3550 switch. I also bought a new laptop that runs Vista Ultimate. When I downloaded Hyperterminal, I see everything as normal except it only gives me the option to connect using a fax modem, COM3 and TCP/IP (Winsock). It seems the COM3 is the only option and should work like COM1, but it isn't. Nothing is happening.
My bits per second is set to 9600, data bits 8, parity none, stop bits 1 and flow control none. Like I said, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, or if I downloaded some bad version. It could really use some help. Thanks,
