    1. did you try it on a computer?
    2. are U using a regular RS232 or a null-modem cable?
    3. any other devices connected to the same USB port work, but this one?

    Hi,
    I also use a laptop, with USB to serial and RS232 cable.
    I originally made my cable "nul modem cable 2-3, 3-2 and 5-5" but this didn't work.
    I changed the cable to 2-2, 3-3 and 5-5 , works 100%
    Have you loaded the drivers for the USB-serial and tested the cable on another device ?
