USB to Serial converter for laptops

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks, for those of you that do a lot of switch and router configuration, you’ll notice that new laptops nowadays are lacking serial ports.

So what do you do? Well you can go and buy a usb to serial converter but they aren’t all created equally. It’s hard to find a reliable converter out there these days. I personally use a product from Gold-X (gxmu-1200) that works great.

I have used it for years and it works in Windows 7 and even works in VMware workstation. You can check it out here.
