Can you check that flow-control is disabled?  If you have flow-control enabled it will cause this.

I have unchecked everthing and it now works.  I tested this with a 2911 Router and these same setting worked okay.  Why do they affect this controller?

The Flow Control for the Serial connection was the problem and needed to uncheck the boxes to get it working with the Wireless Controller.

Some serial controllers just require different settings.  It's completely hardware-dependent.
