Hi Everyone,

I  have been encountering a lot of issues with our clients with regards to properly installing the driver for the Cisco USB console cable.

We've encountered people having trouble: intermittent to no connection on their Cisco USB console cable. So, to help everyone out, especially the ones who do not know yet. Here's a document I've created. 

I know a lot of people already know this one, but to those who do not, hope it helps :D

Didn't even know there was a need to install the cisco_usbconsole driver until a search on the Internet. Nice contribution!

What you could do is supply a link to the driver software or attach it to your post - there are many left hanging without the driver software to begin with?! Thank you

Hey @dayjom111 , i know this is quite a late reply, but i did provide instructions. You just go to any download page of any switch that supports the USB console, it should be there. The reason why i didnt link it in the document is because you would need a valid and privileged Cisco login to even download it. If you're a custom of cisco you should have one. If not, ask your Cisco device provider.
