I have two USB-RS232 Adaptors, both with PL2303 chipset. One is working the
other one not (I hate to say it but both are working under win).
The not working (more expensive) one gets recognized as ucom0 and I have
ucom0, also I can receive signal but not transmit.
When I connect the (more expensive) adopter to a serial console (FreeBSD
comconsole) I can see all kernel messages but I can't type any charecter when
I see the login. If I change to the cheaper adopter everything is working
fine. I compared 'stty -a -f /dev/ucom0' and both adaptors show the same
I'm using tip (ucom0:dv=/dev/ucom0:br#115200:pa=none:) on RELENG_5 (from this
Here is usbdevfs output and the corresponding dmesg line for both adapters,
the 2nd (ATEN) is the working one (cheaper one), the first the more expensive
not working one!
port 1 addr 2: full speed, power 100 mA, config 1, USB-Serial
Controller(0x2303), Prolific Technology Inc.(0x067b), rev 3.00

Any help highly appreciated!
