Franklin, Thanks for the advice. I also checked their web page. So far
as I can tell they DO NOT have a Windows 7 driver for the KeySpan. Yes,
awful. I'll call them on Monday when they're open again. If they can
not offer up a driver for W-seven, I'm going to give them heck and then
ask them to take the KeySpan back.
I'll then get a 2 port PCI to serial interface for the Inspiron. I can
get one for about $20.
73, Larry W7IN
