My trusty HP laptop finally bit the dust this past weekend. Unfortunately, it is impossible to find a new laptop with a serial connection. I've seen a USB to serial port adapter. Will this work with my legacy FAST? Anyone had any success with one?

Yes, you can use a usb to serial port with success. The key is to get the right one. I've heard of many of the adapters not communicating with the FAST box. I bought one from radio shack that was recomended by a friend. I use it with a gateway laptop running vista and a classic fast. Works great.
