Promethean serial to USB problem
I have had to buy a serial/usb convertor to connect a promethean board to a new laptop that has no serial port but I cannot get it working for the life of me.
It is one of the old prometheans with the power jack in the top of the serial connector.
The power light comes on on the board. The laptop detects the adaptor and that is as far as I can get. I have installed the latest promethean drivers but this made no difference.
This is the adaptor I have got:
TARGUS USB TO SERIAL (RS232) ADAPTER - Misco.co.uk
Does anyone know what I can do to get the blasted thing working??Do I need a different adaptor?
My old school had keyspans -is there a difference?
