Dos command to get the hardware ID of a COM port device.

Can i get the hardware ID of a device driver which is connected to a USWB serial port.
We can see the device information with the device manager in Windows.
But i am looking for a DOS command like 'mode' or something.

Have you tried Devcon?  You can download from Microsoft here - The DevCon command-line utility functions as an alternative to Device Manager

c:\> devcon find pci\*

Open in new window


The above command would give you a listing in the following format:


PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_1645&SUBSYS_01211028&REV_15\3&172E68DD&0&30: Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet
PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_1645&SUBSYS_01211028&REV_15\3&172E68DD&0&40: Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet #2

Or you could boot from a Live linux CD or USB stick and run
$ dmesg

Instead of the VEN_XXXX&DEV_YYYY format, dmesg displays them simply like
XXXX:YYYY

Devcon also has a findall command that will list all devices ever attached, even if they're not currently attached or active.
e.g.
devcon findall *

devcon.exe is included with Microsoft's Driver Development Kits, too... if you already have any of those installed.
