If your computer does not automatically install the correct driver and assign a com port number to your device, you will need to manually install a driver. CH340 is the most commonly used one.
- Download the CH340 Driver
- Unzip the file
- Run the installer which you unzipped
- You will see a COM Port number assigned to your machine. In most cases the number is not important.
Inside the zip file you will find a PDF and a “pkg” file, short version, double-click the pkg file, the PDF has some extra information.
See this uninstalling information if you experience issues.
Drivers should be built into your Linux kernel already, and it should work as soon as you plug it in. If not you can download the Linux CH340 Driver (updating your linux install, so the driver is included is suggested).
