cp210x usb to uart

Using the black USB cable that comes with the switch I was able to install cp210x usb to uart drivers and successfully access the console port using 1 Windows 10 machine.

 

However, on all other machines (including other Windows 10 and Mac's), I get an error when plugging the cable in. The drivers seem to install fine but when I plug the cable in, no port gets assigned and there's just an error next to the device in Device Manager. I read something about possible improper enumeration but that's really above my pay grade.

 

Any thoughts as to why I'm having such a difficult time here? It worked great on that first Windows 10 machine.

 

Thanks!

You posted this in the ReadyNAS storage area, and not in the forum area for managed switches.
