I recently bought a Dell Inspirion 6000(worst mistake of my life) and I thought it was coming with a COM port but it doesnt. So what I wanted to know is if I can install one or not?
Ok second question:
I have a FTA sat reciever(legal in canada) and I have been loading it fine with my old Pc which has a com port. But I want to start using my Laptop to load it. So I bought a USB-Serial cable. I pluged it in and Winxp loaded the drivers. After looking in the Device Manager I finally found it. Its under Human Interface Device called USB Interface Device. Now the software that I use to load my receiver only lets me select Com1-4 and not this port. So my question is how do I change this device to act under a Com port?
