Question asked by VRFuser on Aug 16, 2007
I am currently configuring a system to make use of a USB to serial conversion device to effectively add a third com port to it. The system is located at one physical location of the lab and the work area for the hardware being tested is parked at the other end.

Problem: The physical distance between everything may be more then what USB can effectively use. However I can't recall what the specifications insist upon.

Also there are scads of network capable hubs out there, two come to mind, one from Belkin, and one from Keyspan, they also make USB to serial adapters as well. Can the drivers which are supplied by the IO Libraries use these devices to talk to such an adapter plugged into such a hub?

Incidentally this USB to serial device isn't made by them, it's one of the FTDI parts, a FT232R device, itself mounted on a break out board made by Sparkfun, ( ) Ironically the host computer is running Windows XP, and has SP3 applied, and the thing chose COM3 as it's port. The first machine to use this thing also has
SP3 installed, and at the time of the first tests, it too used COM3.
