My console cable didn’t work

I don’t know when my console cable (Cable Matters USB C to RJ45 Console Cable) didn’t work. It is unclear whether it was after changing the MacBook to the M1 or updating the macOS. I haven’t used a console cable in a while.

I re-downloaded and installed the driver from the Cables Matters support site, but it didn’t work. However, it works well when I use the USB-C type TRENDnet TU-S9 console cable, which was used in the old MacBook, along with a USB C to USB A adapter.

I talked to the manager about buying a console cable that supports USB-C, and he mentioned a software called Serial.

Here is a solution!

The Serial offered a 7-day free trial, so I tried it right away.
When I connect the Cable Matters Console Cable, it connects immediately without driver installation!

The price is not low at $39.99, but it is good because you can connect the console cable comfortably without installing a driver. It is recommended for network engineers who have struggled with connecting the console.
