USB to Com port adapter?

Unanswered Question
Aug 4th, 2012


My laptop doesn't have a com port on it to use a roll over cable, what is the com ports actual name so I can google for an adapter?  I guess the best place to buy one is amazon or ebay?


I have this problem too.

Hi Andy,

If you go to any Electronic  store and ask for USB to serial adapter. It will be cheap not that expensive,

Then use normal console cable with it and you all ready to go.

Remember to install drivers before use.

Please rate if it helps

Hi there.

I would recommend the Key Span USB to serial adaptor.

It's never let me down in 3 years and is now held together with duck tape.

If you can't fix it with duck tape it ain't worth fixin!
