If you have a new computer or laptop, there is a chance that you may not have a serial port in your computer. The new computers or laptops sold today do not include serial or printer ports. The serial ports have been replaced by Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports.

You need to install the corresponding drivers also for these adapters. A typical USB to Serial adapter with console cable is shown below.
