Anyone have anyluck with an serial port adapter to usb on Windows XP?
Really would like to get my current laptop to work with a serial port adapter rather than buying and old brick... but everyone tells me adapters are hit and miss :confused:

I've also heard they are hit or miss, but with my first hand experience I haven't had any issues. I use them both at work and at home, different brands, etc.

The only thing I can think of to mention is get one with the PL2303 Prolific chip. I've gotten different brands that use that same chip, and haven't had an issue.

I bought a couple of the more expensive ones, something like $35, and they didnt work. I ended up buying a no name one at frys for something like $5 and it works great.
