Received my USB to TTL serial cable yesterday.
Connected it my PI.
Setup Putty as specified.... anc confirmed COM10 in my control Panel on Windows XP,
115200 8 N 1 No Flow Control.
Have it plugged in correctly to PI.
The terminal window opens up and I get a cursor....session is open...only problem is I get no response from my keyboard...hitting return key does nothing.
When I click with my mouse...the line gets grey but no action.
When I shutdown and restart, however, the console routine...lot of lines... starts-up displays but still no response to keyboard and/or mouseclick.
I am using a wireless usb mouse and keyboard on my pc...could that be the issue?
the PI startup script shows:

Help! I have had the console working with a usb mouse and tv plugged into the PI...not desireable for me because oflocation of TV....this would be a great solution...but...??? could it be my cable?
