|Recommended Serial Port converters|
Hi. I would like to recommend USB to Serial converters that use
the FTDI chipset. There are always the latest drivers available
for all favors of Windows, and Mac, plus many more.
The drivers are available from http://www.ftdichip.com/FTDrivers.htm You will want the VCP drivers from this page. http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm
I recommend using the setup.exe version of the driver for windows. You install it first before plugging in the converter.
