This convenient serial to USB to RS232 console cable enables you to connect your PC directly to the console port of your Cisco or similar router.

  • Two cables in one! Less clutter in your network tool bag!
  • Combines a USB to serial/RS232 converter and a console 'rollover' cable for Cisco routers
  • Configure your router with just one cable, direct from a USB port

One end of the cable has an RJ45 8 pin modular jack plug which connects to the serial/RS232 console port on your router. The other end has a USB plug which connects to the PC's USB port. The cable contains a USB to serial converter, so appears as a COM port on the PC.
