   * **Wrong Dipswitch Setting:** Make sure Dipswitch #5 is in the correct position for the method you are using to connect. Set Dipswtich #5 to On if you are connecting with a USB cable. Set it to Off if you are trying to connect over the Serial 1 port (for example, with a Bluetooth adapter). ​   * **Wrong Dipswitch Setting:** Make sure Dipswitch #5 is in the correct position for the method you are using to connect.

   * **Alternate Connection Method:** If all else fails, try creating a connection using the longer two-step process. As usual select the correct COM Port, but instead of trying to connect go to the Firmware tab of OP Config and click the Snoop button. If a Snoop connection is successful you will see a notification to that effect at the bottom of the window, and the TCB will spit out some information in the console window. It may be a lot of information if the radio receiver is connected/​detected. The Snoop connection only listens to the TCB, it doesn'​t talk. But if that part works, you are already halfway to a full connection. After the TCB has completed printing debug information,​ now click the Connect button and the full communication connection should be made.   * **Alternate Connection Method:** If all else fails, try creating a connection using the longer two-step process.

You can check this setting by opening **Device Manager**, then expand the **USB Serial Bus controllers** heading. Here you will find one or more items called **USB Root Hub**.
