I just wanted to let you know that Phillips the maker of the chip has ceased production and neither we nor MCT are able to source them anymore, so the adapter in question is officially EOL and there will be no further driver updates. I had previously found a website where someone had pulled the adaptor apart to determine if the chipset was an FTDI chipset. Brett said, I had the same problem with the drivers not working on Windows 8. What is the Belkin F5U? Worked like a charm and saved me heaps of stress. I thought, why surely there is a driver for this, compared to a Prolific adapter I have.
Hi All, This linked worked great for my Windows. I have just spent 3 hours trying to find a driver that will work with windows 7 and have come up with nothing. It seems many more are getting the same, positive results.
Kudos to you and boo to Microsoft. It can handle serial speeds up to Kbps. Thank you for posting this! Thank you so much for your research and sharing with the computer community!
The executable file rr-sssp-client. You are the man … Needed this device for a job a start tomorrow. I had previously found a website where someone had pulled the adaptor apart to determine if the chipset was an FTDI chipset. If you are inexperienced with updating Belkin device drivers manually, we highly recommend downloading the Belkin F5U Driver Utility.
I have tried downloading many different drivers and none of them seem to work. I praise you for your stuburnish ways and thankyou a thousand fold, take care Rolf said, Hi, your full of useful information, thank you for sharing fu409 of your knowledge with us!

For all the research you did and for sharing it you saved me allot of time and frustration. Is there any Windows 7 compatible exe file?

Finally, if your a Mac OSX 10 user you might also want to check bekkin Magic Control Technologies driver page as drivers exist for you as well — shame on you Belkin. Chris said, OK got one for ya Delorme LT GPS puck we storm spotters use the he77 out of these when tracking and delorme doesnt have a serial emulator for the usb for windows 7 anything and most of us are using 64bit.
You can help protect yourself from scammers by verifying that the contact is a Microsoft Agent or Microsoft Employee and that the phone number is an official Microsoft global v5u409 service bepkin. Already an owner of Belkin F5U since many years but needed to buy another adapter for the work. I very much appreciate your efforts and for maintaining the link to your notes and the mirror as this adapter is getting kind of long in the tooth now!

Ray said, I downloaded the driver as you suggested from the MCT websitefor my F5U, and it now works fine with my new Windows 7 laptop. Charles said, Thanks very much for this info. After about six months of frustration with windows 7 and my older garmin gps and software that worked perfectly with XPI am back in business. Thank you so much for this!
However, after a few google searches I find it uses the cypress M8 serial chip: Akhil said, Thanks Ben — Thank you very much!!!!!! Thank you for your efforts, I was a bit sad panda until I found this, wanted it for tuning with older ecus. Hence I figured enough is enough.
Great post, I have searched and searched for a fix, I was about to buy a new adapter until I saw this post. Jones said, I got this adapter: Being a computer system administrator and programmer by trade, I knew there would be no physical reason the device would not work under a 64 bit operating system.
