Hehe, going circles.

You want to connect the FR to laptop using a USB-serial converter,
ok. FR doesn't have a serial port so it implies you'll connect the
converter to FR via USB and to laptop via RS232 (because it's the only
common serial standard used on laptops except for USB but you imply
it's not usb, so it must be RS232). That's exactly the diagram i asked
you about and you said i misunderstood you...
