hI, FOR YEARS I BEEN USSING MY CS1x connected via pc2 host with CBX driver to the serial port com2 on my old pc.
Now i have another system and my new mother asus M3N78-VM dont have any serial coms (rs-232) :(

How is the best and "modern" way to connect the CS1x via hostPc port
to a new Xp machine without a visible serial com port?

suggestions welcome


thanx and excuse my bad english!

You should see a 'COM1' serial header along the bottom edge of the motherboard. You could wire your connection there using the pinout and spare parts. Or you could give ASUS more money :)

Best of Luck

you may even rip out the COM1 header + connector from an older computer.

Or, get a USB-to-Serial adapter... (but timing may be mediocre)
