comment Why can't I set a fixed IP in Windows 7
+1 I haven't attached a router yet, it's a stand-alone PC, but suspect that I will need to change my PCs address to 192.168.1.2 Thanks. And, yes, the subnet mask is correct

comment Why can't I set a fixed IP in Windows 7
Yes, I know that 127.0.0.1 is (by default) localhost. I want my PC to have address 192.168.1.1 and for it and others to be avble to address it that way. Uou may have a good point about router default IP address, so many I should make my PC 192.1.168.1.2 - but my point here is that I can't ping what I thought I set as my static IP and, indeed, it does not show up when I run IPCONFIG - I get the previous value.

comment Seeking 9-bit serial port card for Windows PC
+1 I am using an Atmel UC3 wth native 9 bit support & need to handle the communication on a PC. So, I am looking for a natie 9-bit card + driver for Windows. Walter, Nope, not parallel. @Paul +1 There are kudlges which use the parity bit as a 9th data bit, but they tricky to implement (I have researched). I will not implement. I might - in extremis - purchase usch a solution, but strongly prefer a full 9 bits data plus start/stop/parity. – Mawg just now edit
