Need driver for CISCO DB9 TO RJ45 6FT CABLE 72-3383-0 for my notebook


If I am understanding correctly, you are using a serial to ethernet cable. The serial cable plugs into your laptop and the ethernet end plugs into the CONSOLE port on the Cisco.

From here you use a terminal emulation program like "Hyperterminal" to connect via the serial port. As long as your serial port is installed, no other drivers are necessary.

How do i change the interface option to "host" or "Garmin


I ran into the same problem. I then searched many websites and found some good info at: http://forums.gpsreview.net/viewtopic.php?t=11571. But, in the end, I simply changed USB cabels and the thing worked. So try changing your USB cable first, then go to the above website if you are still having trouble.

How to connect my laptop via RS232 to my NEC XN120 telephone exchange using the PC Pro telephone system software in order to programme the exchange?


I connect mine with the RS-232 cable in the side of my laptop. It's a Toshiba rinning Windows XP (nee Vista).

Since you're asking the question, I guess you don't have an RS-232 port. For my Vista machines without serial ports, I own a USB to RS-232 adapter cable. On our side of the pond, they carry names like Iogear GC-232. Here's a U.K. search result http://www.amazon.co.uk/USB-RS232-Converter-Cable/dp/B00077DJIQ

Sometimes, you have to go into the device manager and change the port assignment of these adapters to something in the 1-4 serial port range. That was common with the old software.

ETrex legend serial to usb cable problem


Hi,

Have you tried using the cable with another device just to check it's working ok.. And try a different usb port also, they can be funny that way.
A Garmin rep I spoke to about this told me (off the record) to just go to my local electronics store to pick one up for app €15 as the same thing from Garmin would be about €75. So it's basically the same cable and should work. I tried it with a generic cable here in the shop and it worked in one usb port but not in the other two so a bit of trial and error is needed.
All that failing I'd bring it back to the shop and ask them if there is a different type you could try, possibly you need one with a higher data transfer capability.. But try the cheaper and easier options first..

Connecting to USB Port


you'll need a usb cable... then go to www.garmin.com
the small end of the usb cable goes into the back of the gps... the larger end into the usb port... the computer should find it for you.

Garmin GPS III Pilot to PC communication problem


If it were doing this just on the Vista machine I would say it was Vista related but since you are getting it from an xp machine as well the problem is either cable or the gps unit. You don;t say if this just started happening or ? If you can try out the cable on something else to make sure so you can eliminate it. About the only thing you can do is to make sure the port settings in the pilot are set correctly. Generally the slower the better if you are having communication problems as this makes the signal timing not as critical. Try 9600 baud to start. Make sure that the data bits are also set roght. This is the 8n1 or 7n1 thing you see. I can;t think of what the default is on the garmin but as long as both pc and garmin have speed, bits, parity, and stop but set the same they should talk.

Try to download from the unit as well as upload.Unfortunetly you can only change the speed and protocal or reset the unit. You won't be able to fix it if is a hardware thing. If you are using a USB to Serial adapter then I would say that is your problem or could be. Cheaper ones just don't work often on higher port speeds. You might want to try the gps on a pc with a actual serial port if you are using one. If it works then you should try a different brand of adapter or really slow down the speeds.

This won;t solve it unless you luck out but it should let you know where the problem is.

Hello tompkin,

Programming the Garmin Rhino 120 using a PC requires an interface kit and may also require a RS-232 to USB converter cable or a 9-pin to 25-pin serial adapter depending on what interface is available on your computer.

The interface kit and cables are available on the manufacturer’s homepage for the product: www.garmin.com/products/rino120. Click on the “Accessories” tab and scroll down.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken
