I've seen some cheap RS-232 converters fail with some devices. I was
last bitten by one that just refused to work with Cisco Aironet APs 2600.

I can't say if it was the device or the driver. I never knew what the
problem ultimately was. Using a different model or brand worked.

Just to have the precaution.
