Too bad no one has offered some help here. I am trying to purchase the correct adapter and I am still confused because the choices are: AT-Everex 1 to 1 connection and DTK/Intel which connects the DB9 pins 1-5 to the IDC10 pins 1,3,5,9 and DB9 pins 6-9 to IDC10 2,4,6,8,10. I thought I understood the schemes, but guess I didn't... I was thinking Intel changed to the AT-Everest scheme, now I am not so sure. The manufacturer site seems to think Intel uses the DTK scheme, and states that the DTK scheme applies only to Intel motherboards.
How about it? Using the serial telecommunication device's DB9 female plug to connect to the DB9 port is going to have to match the correct signal passthrough. The device does not publish a pinout. What to do? Just what is the current standard DB9 pin connection?

Just look at the pinout. DB9 RS232 uses the pinout listed at http://www.hardwarebook.info/Serial_%28PC_9%29. My DG45ID's pinout matches that. That means I would use a straight-through connector. You want whatever connector will cause your board's header pinout to end up matching the linked HwB pinout.
