They make an adapter that attached directly to the AUI port to convert it to RJ45 so you won't have to find a funky cable if you can find the converter. I might even have a couple. Let me know if you have trouble and I'll try to look around, but I haven't seen that stuff in a while so I don't know if I still have it or if I can even find it.

You can read about the history of the connector hereAttachment Unit Interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
2500's are old equipment that use 1990's connector technology but the IOS can be updated to use 12.3 so they remain popular as starter lab equipment.
If you want help here, ask about equipment before you buy it.
Anyhow, good luck with your lab.
