USB Serial Port

Hopefully this will save someone some grief. After much messing around with junk that did not work, I finally found a USB serial port that works properly and is fully-functional. The break function even works for password recovery on Cisco routers.

Manufacturer: BAFO Technologies Model: BF-810

That is the 9 pin version. There is a 25 pin version which I assume works as well.

Thank you.

I love these tidbits of info. I hate messing with stuff when you someone else has already gone through the pain.

Digi makes an excellent USB to Serial adapter also called the EdgePort which comes in many configurations. I haven't found anything that it doesn't work properly on. We use them extensively in our company against routers, switches, PLC devices, etc and no glitches so far. They are a little pricey but you get what you pay for.
