I then found a serial RS to USB converter at work, the Belkin F5UV and borrowed it for the day, but when i got home and plugged it into a Windows 7 64Bit laptop I noticed that there was no driver found for the device. When the computer is back up and running, plug in the Belkin USB to serial converter. I have not tested this on Windows 8, but it should work. Check here to Subscribe to notifications for new posts.

Thank you for your help. I have the same question Not sure this RS is supported seria, on windows 7! My Belkin F5UV got the com port number 8 com8and that is what I am going to connect to in putty. I configured a switch using this driver and device on Win7 with no problems. I solved it using Teraterm instead of Putty.

Yes, this post is about Windows!
This is a very old comment but as I had the same problem and found a solution someone might be interested.
You can find Win 10 version here: Works like a charme! I also tried to let the windows update find the driver and that failed as well. This driver kinda works for me but the putty session will lock up and require a reboot of the laptop at random intervals.

In Windows i use Putty to connect using telnet, ssh, serial or any other connection like that. I did not do it at first, and was not able to use the device before I did. I then found a serial RS to USB serail at work, the Belkin F5UV and borrowed it for the day, but when i got home and plugged it into a Windows 7 64Bit laptop I noticed that there was no driver found for the device.

I have just spent 3 hours trying to find a driver that will work with windows 7 and have come up with nothing. I have not tested this on Windows 8, but it should work. However, Belkin don’t make the drivers anyway. I have tried downloading many different drivers and none of them seem to work.
I have a D-link DGSSR rack switch for my servers, and it had some random IP address on the configuration interface that I was not able to find, and I needed to get into the switch to configure some vlans.
