I use the Edgeport/4 which is an industrial-grade adapter retailing for over
$300, but surplus on eBay for around $30. It has 4 Serial ports and has
been flawless in CW, RTTY, rig control, TNC control. I've used it with
Windows XP and Windows 7. It is bullet-proof.
There are a number of other single-Serial port adapters in the $20-30 range
that have proven solid as well. Search this reflector archive and the RTTY
reflector archive for specific recommendations.
