If you don't like your NADS floating off the back of your laptop serial port, I highly recommend a cable I just picked up from MicroCenter today:
Belkin PRO Series 1' F2L088-01 DB-25 male to DB-9 female, wired straight through
I tested with Model 100, Model 102
I've always been impressed with Belkin serial cables and this is working out perfectly.
There are two other numbers on the box in addition to F2L088-01 in case you are googling for it: 261852 P95095-C
