I adopted a spare data cable for mobile phones, configured for Samsung SGH-E700 but the PCB: DC-U-6858(A) seems  quite generic, e.g. it is offered for [http://forum.freifunk-hannover.de/viewtopic.php?p=2669#2669 Siemens] as well.  The PCB comprised the '''[http://www.stkaiser.de/anleitung/files/OTi6858.pdf OTi6858]''' chip.

I adopted a spare data cable for mobile phones, configured for Samsung SGH-E700 but the PCB: DC-U-6858(A) seems quite generic, e.g. it is offered for Siemens as well. The PCB comprised the OTi6858 chip. FWIW: not the Prolific IC, in case you get confused when Windows is looking for a "USB-UART Tx Line" device driver. A slightly more recent version is here that works with Win2K as well with Win XP)

GTD with Windows

Unfortunately my Ubuntu notebook (running kernel 2.6.20-16-generic #2 SMP) doesn't support the OTI 6858 IC out of the box and I wasn't in the mood to try this patch.
