3. Installing the UPort 1400/1600 Driver
WARNING
If your host PC uses an nVIDIA nForce 4 processor and you find that
your host PC is not receiving the correct data, you should enter the PC’s
BIOS configuration utility and disable USB 2.0. This will cause your
host PC to use the USB 1.1 specification, which should prevent the data
transmission problem from recurring.
1. Run the Setup program located on the UPort 1400/1600 Document and
Software CD-ROM. Click Next to Start installing the driver.
3. Click Install to proceed with the installation.
Before connecting the UPort 1400/1600 USB-to-serial hubs to your
computer’s USB port, we recommend installing the UPort 1400/1600
driver first. To do this, follow the installation procedure described in
Section 3.
The installation procedure described in Section 3 was done on a PC
running Windows 2000 (x86). Windows XP and 2003 (32-bit and 64-bit)
driver installations are the same. UPort 1400/1600 can be connected to
any upstream type A USB port that is on the PC host or on an upstream
hub. UPort 1400/1600 is hot pluggable, and therefore there is no need to
power down your computer prior to installation.
After installing the driver, connect the UPort 1400/1600 to an upstream
host or hub. The Found New Hardware wizard will locate the
appropriate drivers automatically. Once the drivers are found, various
windows will pop up as UPort 1400/1600’s serial port is being installed.
When the Found New Hardware wizard finishes installing UPort
1400/1600, use the operating system’s Device Manager to check and/or
modify the port settings. The new COM port will be listed under Ports
(COM & LPT).
