Hi folks! For those of us network administrators that need a usb to serial cable to manage routers and switches, it can be a pain to find the right cable.
I’ve run into countless friends who have crappy cables that constantly disconnect them from their devices or just have horrible driver issues. Well there is one cable I have sworn by for years that I have to say I have had very little problems with. Those are the cables from GoldX. Specifically the GoldX USB to Serial Converter.
The cable can be bought here and the drivers can be downloaded for your operating system direct from their site. Here’s hoping they release good drivers again for Windows 8!
