I just fixed one for my local store dealer. It happens all the time to him.

1. dont use a wireless internet connection.
2. to restore the bad unit get a desktop with serial connection and connect and update.
3. You can try other USB to Serial adapter or change settings in yours. I use a keyspan. Laptops are finicky with the usb to serial but if you have a software program with your adapter try some slower timing speeds.

Sounds like another reason to go straight USB.
