This section applies to users who do not have serial ports or users who want to connect a serial port to a USB port.

There is no product we are aware of that enables users to connect USB connections to a serial port. We recommend users who do not have a USB ports on their computers to consider purchasing a USB interface card or consider a purchasing a new computer. Users who do not have any available USB ports may want to consider purchasing a USB hub, which enables users to connect hundreds of devices to their USB ports.
