I bought a Roving Networks USB-5V Serial UART cable (RN-SRL-FTD5V-CLR) from Mouser Electronics, and added a header to it for TX, RX, Gnd connection to EZ-B. And yes, I am connecting Cable Tx to EZ-B Rx and Cable Rx to EZ-B Tx. The connection to my desktop PC was plug & play. The device manager shows the Cable in Com 8 with 9600 baud rate, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and no flow control. I see the Cable LEDs flashing to show two-way communication when I click on ARC CONNECT.
But I am not getting connection. Instead I get the "Version 8.5 firmware message" that tells me to upgrade to Version 16, which I already have. I see other reports of this message in this forum but little help.
Would appreciate some help.
