the Nexxtech is a nogo then.
I live in a small town so its not likely I will be able to buy a null-modem cable locally.
Staples and the Source do not stock them.
I am sure the cable(s) that came with the FTA's are not going to show up now. Grrr!
I will have to shop on the net.
I was hoping to get everything up and running before the Fri. deadline for the Rockets trial.
Thanks once again for everyone who gave advice.
Heading back to the source to get my 50 bux refunded.
