Baud rate? Are you using a dial-up modem? Not to sound rude, but if you aren't computer savy, why are you trying to change/edit a baud rate?

its for work

i have a meter that collects data, its set to 19200, i have installed the software and its set to 19200, my problem is the cable.
i have installed the driver, but i cant find where it is located to change the baud rate of the cable, and the instructions tell me to find it in my port page!

as of now i cant get data to transfer from my meter to my laptop, and was told if my baud rate on all 3 things do not match it will not work, which would explain my problems

if there is any additional info that is needed let me know.

im still looking for the driver for the cable. the instructions given are for vista which dosnt help me any =/
