    USB

    Hi all. I recently purchased a USB to Serial adapter. My new computer has only one serial port and I needed more. I installed the adapter and the Win ME found the adapter, loaded the software from the drivers disk and it came up in the device manager. So far so good. Now, I want to use a "terminal" type program to access a "controller". We can call it a modem or anything like that. I tried using HyperTerm, but there is no selection for the USB port, only Com Ports. How do I get programs to talk to this "new" serial port ?
    Anyone ???

    Re: USB

    it may be looking at the usb adapter as a com port. when you installed the adapter it should have given you the com port number (com1, com2)
    so if you already have one serial port filled more than likely the new adapter serial port would be listed as com 2 but this is all quessing
    but maybe worth a try
    HTH
