But it is there regardless as to whether or not the adapter is
Be careful, because the first adapter I received was actually faulty.
The light would go on and the device would show up in my USB device
tree. But it would not work. After a few talks with Keyspan's support,
they had to send me a new one for it to work. The whole process was
free of charge.
I would suggest you try the adapter on a MacOS X or Windows machine
along with the software that shipped with it just to make sure it
behaves as intended. Assuming you do have a Mac or a Win machine handy
I've had this adapter for years and it works fine in Mac OS X. I
just tested it in another identical machine running Gentoo with a 2.6
kernel and it works fine there too.
I can freely move it between Mac OS X and Linux without issue, but as
soon as I move it back to FreeBSD, it goes dead again.
It's not the USB ports because I can connect a USB keyboard and/or
mouse into any of the other USB ports on that machine and they work
FYI: I use this adapter on MacOS X laptop to access the console of
FreeBSD, RedHat and Sun Microsystems machine. It works like a charm.
