USB to SERIAL converter is not detected by two different laptops running vista home and xp pro . This converter is attached to cisco 2500 router console. What can be wrong ? Is it necessary to install a driver for it, i came across something like "pl2303". As soon as connected USB into port it pops a message, USB device not recognised. I am using Hyper Terminal in xp and Putty in Vista... Product was bought from ebay, http://cgi.ebay.com/USB-2-0-TO-SERIAL-RS232-DB9-9-PIN-ADAPTER-CABLE-PDA-GPS_W0QQitemZ350085329941QQihZ022QQcategoryZ41995QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262
