DO NOT install WinXP drivers on Win7!

The Keyspan units have always worked well for me. I see them recommended all the time.
+1 ... I've used a Keyspan USB-to-Serial adapter for many years on my 12" LX200 "Classic" ... without any problems. I've also used it for other computer equipment connections without ever experiencing any problems. It's the best adapter available ... IMHO.

I agree about the FTDI but not the Prolific, I've got one (a real one, not a Chinese copy) and it will work in some circumstances but not others. It's sensitive to the length of the RS232 cable, the USB connection and the application.
One based on the FTDI chips are best.
Second place goes to Prolific chips.
FTDI or Edgeport for me, people say good things about Keyspan but I've never tried one.

I switched to Keyspan and all was back to normal.
