This where the drivers are becoming increasingly hard to find even though the hardware is still around. Some hardware might not be for that specific hardware but the chipset may be the same as someone else’s hardware. The features might thus be limiting. Having said that however it normally still gets you to operate the device in its usable mode. The Gigaware USB to Serial Driver  is no different as Gigaware used a Prolific chipset.
