If you are using a USB to COM (serial) port connector you will need to know the COM number that Windows assigns to that COM port. This number may be different each time you plug into the USB port or any time you restart your computer. If the directions do not work below be sure to use your Windows help or even the Internet will have great steps to COM port discovery.

If you need to buy a USB to COM connector, we recommend the USB Serial Adapter - Ultimate, as we have tested and verified that it works correctly.
