Connecting Out of Band Modem to Console

Hi guys I need a hand,

I have to connect a modem to the console port of my 2851,

The console port of the 2851 router is RJ-45 and the console port of my modem is a female DB-25.

Can anybody point me to the right direction as to what adapter I need for an RJ-45 rollover cable to DB-25 male?

I found this: CAB-25AS-MMOD Adapter Technical Specifications - Cisco Systems
but Cisco says its for the 2500 series.

Any help will be much appreciated.

    Typically you would connect a modem to the AUX port on the router, not the console port. That cable would still apply to a newer router same as an older one. You can't use the blue "all in one" style cable that has the DB9 molded to it because it is internally rolled over.
