I'm sort of having the same issue...I need to attach a USB to Serial
Converter for a radio that must be connected to either COM 1 or COM 2 and i
can't seem to figure out how to accomplish this? When I plug in to a USB
port it automatically assigns COM 4-7 but not 1-3?? Is there a way to
re-assign COM ports?
