How the USB to Serial dual port RS-232 converter works:

The USB Serial Dual-Port converter with Prolific USB Technology allows the use and operation of two serial devices via USB control simultaneously. The USB serial dual-port converter is self powered through the USB Port it\'s connected to. The USB serial dual-port converter adds 2 additional rs232 serial ports to you PC or Laptop as seen in the images above.

To install the device on your computer, first insert the converter driver CD into your CD-ROM drive and install the drivers. After the drivers have been installed, connect the USB to rs232 serial converter to your USB Port. The new hardware wizard in Windows after connecting the USB serial rs232 converter to the USB port should automatically recognize the new hardware. You will see the new hardware wizard several times as it must install the driver for each of the rs232 serial ports to function properly with the USB port. You will see that the prolific USB serial bridge drivers will be installed for each new hardware found.

NOTE: If for some reason the USB to serial converter is not recognized after connection, try rebooting your PC or laptop or manually adding the hardware through Add New Hardware Wizard.
