Modicon Micro Serial Port workarround
My former Problem: I originally found problems with newer computers and going online with the Modicon Micro via the Serial port. I am running Windows 2k and when I would work online, the connection was very slow. Plus, certain tasks like search and online editing didn't even work.
My Solution: I found this USB serial adapter from Keyspan (www.keyspan.com) part number USA-19QW that has fixed the problem. When I go online with the Modicon Micro now, it is super fast. All my former problems have disappeared. Plus, now I have a free serial port to connect to the HMI.
I don't know how much it costs since I found it in the desk drawer of a former employee that was using it with XP, but I think it is about $60.00.
P.S. If anyone knows what the actual cause of the problem is, or if there is a plain windows work around, that would be cool to know too.
