PCMCIA Serial Adapter

Hey all,
I'm new to posting here, but I've been an observer for several years.

Anyway, does anybody have any experience with the Koutech CBS220-1 dual port serial adapter? I bought one from Newegg and I can't get it to work. I've been trying to complete the tune on my truck and I was trying to save some cash by not going with the $200 socketcom adapter. I also tried the serial to usb adapter cable with no luck.

I was able to install the drivers and have the ports show up in device manager, but I can't connect to the scan tool, LM-1 or the FTC-1. Are there any settings I need to look at?

Thanks for any replies,

I jsut sold a new Koutech 2 port serial card on here I had as a spare. It worked pretty well as far as I can tell- great deal for the money.

I also have a Socket 2 port unit- it works about the same, the main difference being a smaller profile, and it drains a little less power. Not a huge deal if you have a 12V adapter or inverter.

If you want a socket unit, keep an eye out on ebay- you can score a 2-port for anywhere from $60-140.
