FT232R USB UART Driver

USB DriverFirstly the FT232R USB UART driver is a bit of a complicated install. The usb\vid_0403&pid_6001&rev_0600 is also explained below. Secondly the screenshots below will give you direction with regards to installing the driver the correct way. This means that you first have to uninstall the driver, disconnect from the internet and then install the driver again. Finally the FT232R USB drivers below need to be extracted to an area on your computer you can find.

FT232R USB UART Driver

Without doubt the driver ID below this is for the Gigabyte – M68SM-S2L UART. Given these points this is the FT232R USB UART and the driver which matches this hardware. There are other hardware that use the same driver as their chipsets would be the same. The names might be different but the internals are the same. These tend to be FTDI chipsets which are very common. See the hardware ID as shown as this remains the same even when the brand name is different. Follow the steps to install this driver.

Device Name: FT232R USB UART

Hardware ID: USB\VID_0403&PID_6001&REV_0600
USB\VID_0403&PID_6001Compatible ID:
For this reason if you are looking for the hardware which uses the Hardware ID usb\vid_0403&pid_6001&rev_0600 then this is from the old ft232r usb which you can see below. Given that this hardware ( usb vid_0403&pid_6001&rev_0600 ) and software for this Hardware ID is from the 2014 VCP driver. More likely than not you are running a Windows XP computer. You can see it it will function on Windows 10.
If you are using a Windows 10 computer then you will be looking for the ft232r usb uart driver Windows 10 64bit or 32bit. This is in both of the latest drivers. There is now also the ft232r usb uart driver windows 11 driver which was released in December 2021. This is the first Windows 11 version. The last download is the first version for Windows 11. The last two downloads will allow for Windows 10 operating systems.

These are the same descriptions where some call it a controller while others call it a UART. There is one final note and that is that there are many white box devices that use this same driver. The Moyina USB console cable driver also uses this driver. Even though the Moyina uses a FT232RL chipset. These drivers will work on it as well. The FT232rl driver will work with this driver which many have used in USB port cables and convertors.

Step 1:

Download the driver file and extract it to your hard driver where you can find it

Step 2:

In brief you first need to uninstall the incorrect drivers on your computer. In Windows, go to Control Panel then to Device Manager

Given these points now press the delete button on your computer and it will ask for confirmation.

In any case collapse the Ports menu and now click on the USB controller at the bottom of the list.

Be that as it may you now need to uninstall the existing USB Serial Convertor.

Disconnect the USB cable from your PC to KMX1 or KMX2

reconnect the USB cable from your PC to KMX1 or KMX2

A new yellow flagged item will appear FT232R USB UART

Right Click on FT232R USB UART

Select Update Driver Software


Now you need to find where you extracted the drivers from the file you downloaded above and point the software to the directory.

For one thing, the driver software for USB Serial Converter has been installed

USB Serial Converter

The USB Serial Convertor is now installed. Next you have to install the port. If you are old enough to remember software modems then you will recall that it was done in the same manner.

Another key point the yellow flagged item will have changed name to USB Serial Port

Right Click on USB Serial Port
Select Update Driver Software


Update Driver Software

Given that the driver software for the Port is in the same directory where you had the other drivers which you had just installed.

What is a UART driver?

The UART is a universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter and it is computer hardware used in asynchronous serial communication where the data format and transmission speeds can be configured. The signaling on a UART is done using levels and methods handled by a driver circuit outside of the UART.

What is the ft232r USB UART driver?

The ft232r USB UART device is used in many devices which uses asynchronous serial communication. You can download the ft232r USB UART driver by clicking on the driver above. Ensure that you have an ft232r device for the UART driver to be recognised. See troubleshooting the ft232r on this website.

What is difference between rs232 and UART?

The difference between the rs232 and UART is that the rs232 is a asynchronous serial communication protocol used by a UART device. Think of the UART as the computer while the rs232 is the software on the computer. The rs232 protocol runs over UART hardware.

Is rs232 digital or analog?

The rs232 is analog. The rs232 uses voltages to communicate.

Why is rs232 still used?

USB is standard today however that was not always so. The rs232 was used on older printers and still used today. Most rs232 devices today are used on scientific equipment and on mainly industrial sensors and remote equipment. It is much easier to use the rs232 on low voltage systems.

What is the difference between rs232 and rs232c?

The difference between the two standards is that the rs232c version is much newer. The rs232c uses +/- 5 voltage compared to the older rs232 which uses +/- 25 voltage. This is the major difference between the two standards
