Laptop with 2 db9 serial ports?

    Does anybody sell a laptop that has two db9 serial ports?

    I currently use a laptop with a two port serial pcmcia card, but find
    that it isn't robust enough. (The serial cables fall off the card too

    Thanks in advance,

    - Tom

    I think I last saw this on an 8086 laptop.

    If you'r using a PCMCIA card with a dongle, and you have a laptop with a
    dual slot, you can reinforce the dongle connection with some metal or
    something so that it reinforces the connection.

    Maybe try a USB to serial adapter. I bouth 2 Belkin F5U109's for less
    than $40 shipped. Work great. They even work thru a USB hub with no
    xternal power required.
