My pc is pretty new and does not have the connector COM

Customer Question

My pc is pretty new and does not have the connector for a COM port. My PC is running Windows 10
JA: How long has this been going on?
Customer: Since I first tried to connect to the serial device 6 months ago. I have been picking others brains and have not found a solution yet.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I looked at the software I am connecting with and do not see any help.
JA: Have you tested the connections by doing a ping utility test?
Customer: I have tried all 3 USB ports and the software doesn't recognize. No I am not familiar with that term.
JA: The network expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: That might be helpful. Thank you.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Network Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
