  1. UPS & serial to USB converter

    I have purchased a Belkin UPS which uses a serial port to connect to my computer.

    I only have 1 serial port which is in use.

    I did purchase a "USB to Serial " adapter since I do have two available USB ports.

    However, my computer recognized I had new hardware but can not "see" the USB port and says it can't find software to install "USB to serial converter".

    I assume I could buy another serial card if I have the space.

    Any other suggestions?

    Try installing the direct drivers for the UPS. Or the adapter if there is one.

    Well, all is well but it's not my fault.

    There was a little 3" CDs in the package. I have never even seen one before.

    Anyway, it had the driver to install the adapter.

    Thanks for the post.
