Hi Giulio,

i would love to give you a solution to your needs, but it isn't sorry.

On the wiki you can read about success on docking a MessagePad
with NCU at 230kbps when using a rs232 adapter, while using the Keyspan
such speed can be reached in a tricky way only when using Escale on OSX.

So, as you already experienced, the Keyspan will let you get a max
speed of 115kbps
which is X3 times faster than plain serial and corresponds to a
baudrate of 76800.

SerialSpeed230 being a shareware does exactly the same job
that the Serial Enabler does for free.
