I have 2 brand new Cisco 2501 routers that my job has never used so I asked my boss if I can take them home and play with them they will be great because I am currently enrolled in the Cisco Academy Program in night school...he gave me the ok!!! icon_lol.gif The only problem is that they did not come with the transiver that goes from AUX to Ethernet. So I'm looking for a part number or a specifc brand that will work with the Routers. Can anyone help me??? Can someone give me a link where I can get this info. I called Cisco and they kept on giving me the part number for the console cable. I need the Transiver that goes from AUX to Ethernet so I can connect the routers to a switch. Thanks!!! icon_confused.gif

    You can use any ordinary Ethernet transceiver (as long as it has an AUI and UTP port ;))

    Here's a pic of the ones I use: icon_arrow.gif www.techexams.net/images/cl_5l.jpg

    Thanks for the reply. I have seen pictures of them before. I will try to get my hands on 2 of those transivers. I will be setting up a mini-lab in my house. 2 Cisco 2501 Routers and 2 Cisco 2924XL switches, one Cisco 802.11b antenna, plus 2 PC's and one Laptop. :D

    Is that setup a good suggested Lab? Should I have anything else?

    It is an excellent lab for the CCNA exam... 2 routers is really required, but 2 switches is 'deluxe' ;) it allows you to actually configure interVLAN routing..., trunking etc.

    What is the difference between the CentreCom 210T and the CentreCom 210TS? They are both the same price.

    the 210TS is from the 'slim line', it is simply less thick than the 210T
