    Dear All,

    I am trying to install this device on my iMac (OS x V10.5.8) so I can use MacAXEpad to program my PICAXE MCUs.

    I have loaded the driver - apparently successfully - as I have an entry in System Prefs>Network called 'AVE02...XE USB' 'Not Connected'.

    Now the interesting bit. No matter what I do, I cannot get the Status 'Not connected' to change to 'Connected' and consequently the MacAXEpad can't use the USB cable to program the MCUs.

    I assume that I need to fill in one or more of the 'Configuration', 'Tel. Number', 'Account Name' or 'Password' fields with something intelligent, but WHAT?

    Regards, MW.

    Any luck?

    I am also trying to do this using OS 10.6.4 and haven't had any luck. The network config seems to think its a modem, which makes no sense to me. No idea how to configure the thing and the photos don't match whats in the picaxe manual. Waiting for my registration on the Picaxe forums to complete and then I'll post there as well...
