Both RS serial ports share same IRQ which saves valuable resources if other expansion cards are used. DB9 – RJ45 adapter. A regular conventional serial card will have either a 50 pin or a 68 pin contact header. It would look like it detected the hardware and set everything up correctly but not actually send any bytes. I’ll assume it also wouldn’t work with a Cisco console cable. Something broke inside and it will no longer retain whatever card you put in it, it’s in “constant eject” mode, if you will. Some cards with poorly written drivers cannot be configured.

I could cut away the shroud on the Keyspan or alternately constantly carry a short M-F DB9 cable, but that’s a pain. Unlike USB based serial cards which due to the virtual COM port drivers have moschiip substantial data delay which can make communication with some sensitive serial devices impossible.


Once the drivers for the serial card has been successfully installed a COM port will show up in your operating system’s Device Manager where you can mkschip several port settings, if your serial PCI card has good drivers.

The blue console cables are about as generic as you can get on the DB9 side, nothing crazy. Sep 16, Posts: Your header in Here. Feb 12, Posts: Connecting external modems, serial printers, handheld PDAs, mice and trackballs, mozchip, serial POS devices, digital cameras and more has never been easier!

If you are desperate you can use the libftdi driver for direct access, although that won’t work if you can’t moechip the client application.

Depending on the voltage the serial card is using it have wither 1 or 2 key notches that will fit into the particular connector inside your computer. That way, if the cable fits it works.

There are many models and brands of chipsets, we recommend a serial PCI card chip from either Moschip or FTDI, these processors have proved to be effective and reliable in most applications.

They have good virtual COM port drivers that support a wide range of standard and non-standard baud rates. Good part is they don’t use an FTDI chip which seems to show up in damn near everything these days.


Useful optional accessories not included.

The other reason being, as mentioned the Keyspan is “shrouded”. For other serial converters and alternative solutions please see our selection of serial port cards.

For alternative serial port cards please see our full selection of serial RS port cards. Win and R2 mosschip had zero issues with it. We use them all of the place here. COM ports can also easily be renamed within your operating system’s Device Manager.
