Lab build: where to buy DCE/DTE cables?

crosariocrosario Member Posts: 4 ■□□□□□□□□□
Hi all,

i'm in the process of building a lab, I already own several 2500/2600/3600 series routers with serial interfaces, but I need some DCE/DTE DB60 crossover cables.

Where can I find these? (I prefer European shops to avoid customs expenses)


Thanks in advance

    I bought from these guys on eBay. The cables worked perfectly and I didn't pay anything in shipping.

    /agree Ebay.

    Make sure you order the right end conectors. DB15/DB60/smart serial ... DTE/DCE
    They are usually not the thick Cisco serial cables but they do the job.

    Arrive in a couple of days.

    Try Monoprice. They have them. Great deals, too. They have an eBay store, too, which have a little bit better pricing than most.

    Has anyone tried Dantrak-UK recently?

    They seem to be UK based, i've sent an e-mail 2 days ago but haven't got any answer yet.

    I've bought cables from their eBay store and was happy each time I dealt with them. I wanted several DB60-SS cables and they put more up when I asked. They're the UK reseller of the Skeletek rack kit as well.
