How to Install Aten USB to Serial Bridge Drivers Pilotes on Windows 10/11
If you have a device that requires a serial port connection, such as a scientific instrument, an industrial automation system, or a point of sale system, you may need a USB to serial bridge adapter to connect it to your computer. One of the most popular and reliable adapters is the Aten USB to Serial Bridge, which supports both PC and Mac systems with baud rates up to 921.6 Kbps.
However, to use the Aten USB to Serial Bridge adapter, you need to install the correct driver on your computer. The driver is a software program that allows your computer to communicate with the adapter and the device connected to it. Without the driver, the adapter will not work properly or at all.
In this article, we will show you how to install the Aten USB to Serial Bridge drivers pilotes on Windows 10/11, which are the latest versions of Microsoft Windows operating system. We will also provide you with some troubleshooting tips in case you encounter any problems during or after the installation.
Step 1: Download the Driver File
The first step is to download the driver file from the official website of Aten. You can use this link: https://www.aten.com/global/en/products/usb-solutions/converters/uc232a/
On the website, scroll down to the section \"Support and Downloads\" and click on \"Windows\". You will see two options for the driver file: one for version 18.104.22.168 and one for version 22.214.171.1245. The version you need depends on the chipset of your adapter. You can check the chipset by looking at the label on the back of your adapter. If it says \"2021\" or later, you need version 126.96.36.1995. If it says \"2020\" or earlier, you need version 188.8.131.52.
Click on the appropriate file name and save it to your computer.
Step 2: Uninstall any Previous Driver
The next step is to uninstall any previous driver that may be installed on your computer for the Aten USB to Serial Bridge adapter. This will prevent any conflicts or errors during the installation of the new driver.
To uninstall the previous driver, follow these steps:
Make sure the Aten USB to Serial Bridge adapter is connected to one of the USB ports of your computer.
Right-click on Windows Start and left-click on Device Manager.
Double-click on \"Ports (COM & LPT)\".
Right-mouse click on \"USB to serial bridge\" (the name may be slightly different depending on the current driver version), then click \"Uninstall device\".

Next, click OK to confirm the uninstall of the driver.
The driver will now be uninstalled.
Remove the USB converter from the USB port.
Step 3: Install the New Driver
The final step is to install the new driver that you downloaded in step 1. To install the new driver, follow these steps:
Make sure the Aten USB to Serial Bridge adapter is NOT connected to your computer.
Open the downloaded file and follow the instructions on the screen.
The driver will now be installed.
After the installation has completed, connect the USB-to-Serial converter to a USB port of your computer.
