    It's the one and only USB device connected to my Hometroller, so it should not be a power issue. I might try a different port when I get home. I cannot find the power rating on the SIIG's specs... when I get it going again I'll have to see how much of the hub's power it's using through device properties... if it's borderline, then that could be the issue.

    John,
    Are you sharing USB Root Hubs with any other USB devices? I wonder if the device needs more power than is available?

    Rupp, it's on a Hometroller Series 2, so I cannot add any USB ports... Probably should've said that in the original post.

    John,
    I would suspect your USB ports before the device. I had all kinds of USB problems with my built in ports. I bought a cheap add on USB card and all my issue disappeared. It may be worth a try as these add on USB cards are cheap.

    Issues with a SIIG 2-port USB to Serial Converter

    I have a SIIG 2-port USB to Serial Converter, the same one that HS sells as the HS2012, though I purchased elsewhere.

    Anyway, has anyone else had a problem with it being recognized as an "Unkown Device" after a reboot? I have my W800 and Ztroller connected to it, using COMs 5 & 6 respectively, and after X reboots, the ports disappear and the convertor becomes an "Unknown Device" Only a compelte shutdown (which removed power from the device) will make it become recognized again. It's as if it does not always recover gracefully from a soft reboot.

    I've had it for about 4 months, and this problem just started in the last month. I'm wondering if this is typical, or if my unit's going bad.
Working...
