The Gigaset 3070 isdn is the ancestor of a family of ISDN DECT base stations allowing the connection of a PC via USB or DECT. This project is building the Linux support (drivers and frontend utilities) which Siemens neglected to.

- Improvements and fixes. This update includes a fix for an incorrect device driver (“Microsoft – WPD – 2/22/2016 12:00:00 AM - 5.2.5326.4762”) that was released by a third-party on March 8, 2017 that affected a small group of users with USB connected phones or other media devices that rely on Media Transfer Protocol (MTP).
- You safely remove the USB device from the USB port. You reconnect the same USB device or a different USB device to the same USB port on the hub. In this scenario, the computer does not detect the USB device. Note This issue affects USB 2.0 hubs and USB 2.0 components in USB 3.0 hubs. This issue occurs because the USB port is disabled.
US232R cables from FTDI Chip allow a RS-232 serial port to be added to a PC via the USB port.
RS-232 ports can be very useful for connecting a PC to embedded systems and other electronic devices such as the Raspberry PI.
These USB to serial RS232 Converters need to have drivers installed when using the converters in Windows.
This article shows how to download and install drivers for the converter cables.
Windows 8 and a US232R-100 model converter cable are used as an example in this article, but other cable models and other versions of Windows will operate in a similar way.
Using the cables in Linux will usually not require drivers to be installed. The article on connecting a Raspberry PI board to a Linux computer using a USB to serial port converter cable shows how to connect to the cable's serial port using minicom on a Linux PC.
Downloading and Installing the Drivers
This video shows how to download and install the VCP (Virtual COM Port) drivers in Windows 8:
Virtual COM Port (VCP)
Download Usb Dect Port Devices Driver
VCP drivers are installed to configure the cable as a Virtual COM Port in Windows.
When configured as a VCP, the USB to serial converter cable will appear as a COM port in Device Manager or other applications that connect to the COM port, e.g. the port will appear as COM3, COM4, etc.
Download Usb Dect Port Devices Driver Booster
Terminal emulator software can connect to the converter cable by selecting the correct COM port in the software.
