Linksys Wireless Router :: Serial Connector Adapter / Cable For WAN RJ-45 Port?
Aug 21, 2009
On the WAN port, there are 4 pins that are traced to the internal serial traces. Where can we get the cable that will fit into the WAN RJ-45 port and have a serial connector on the back end. It may be called a Cisco Debug Adapter, but we haven't been able to find?
Currently my setup works fine except that I need another ethernet port.I have a E4200V2 with a HP laserjet 4000N printer connected via JetDirect ethernet and I am able to print with any of my devices.However, because I have need of another ethernet port, I am wondering if anybody has tried using a parallel to usb cable? The parallel side of the cable being connect to the printer and the usb side to the router.
Or if I really want that port made available, will I have to get some type of external print server?
I know that HP makes a JetDirect Card with a USB port, however, I don't want to spend the $80 on ebay to get a used one if a $10 new cable will work.
I have a long 2 pair cat 5 cable which I want to use to connect a ADSL modem to my desktop (located in a different room). I took the cable to few local computer dealers but none of them could connect an RJ-45 connector to it. They can only connect a 4 pair cat 5 cable. Connect a 2 pair cat 5 Ethernet cable to a RJ-45 connector. Kindly use simple language. I have attached an image of the cable for your reference. [URL]
I have 802.11n wireless network at home. Unfortunately my TV box requires internet to work and it doesn't have wifi card installed (only ethernet port). It's very unconfortable to connect tv box with the router through cable.
So is it possible to use WAG120N as a wireless client for my existing wifi network and connect tv box through cable with WAG120N? In that case WAG120N would be some kind of wireless network adapter for my TV box.
I have some 2620 routers and 2950 switches that have Console Ports that are serial. However my HP PC w.Win 7 dosent have any serial ports. I am looking for a USB to Serial converter that will allow me to access the console ports so I can configure these devices. I've read many old posts and still havent found a solution. Is it true that none of these cables work? Anything that will work on XP? (also have XP PC's).How about a RJ45 to Serial?? How about a PCI Serial card? I cant believe Cisco hasnt developed a conversion cable to use with their Console Cables?
I have a Dell Latitude E6410 laptop that does not have a Serial port or a Break key on the keyboard. I have a Prolific PL2303 USB-to-Serial adapter which is installed and I can access the CLI ok with this setup via HyperTerminal.
My problem is that I am unable to break into ROMMON using the break sequence Ctrl + Break (as there is no break key). I have also tried TeraTerm with the break sequence of Alt + B.
Additionally, I have tried setting the baud rate to 2600 and pressing the space bar for 10 seconds to no avail.
I think the crappy usb to serial cable from china broke because when i boot up my cisco router, after it decompose the IOS image and shows all the interface links, it won't do anything. I can't get to user exec mode.anyways, i think my usb to serial cable is faultily. I got one that is from ebay for like 2 bucks and i think it is the reason why i can't even connect to my router now
I have noticed that in my router log that the router opes a port automatically without any human interaction and after some the time router closes the port again.Here is the log file of my router that opens the port and close it after a couple of hours.

HP just released the 8560p elitebook- not a bad shake and it actually has an integrated Serial port.Any other notebooks that have integrated serial ports?- I know the T6x Thinkpads used to use a slimbay adapter thing. I just hate the Usb adapter, and bossman said I could get a new computer here pretty soon...
We want to multicast several serial ports over the WAN/LAN network.In few words what we need to do is transport is several serial ports, is like a RS-485 network but in this case via IP.I do some similar to transport 4E&M lines with great results but I don't know how to start to do the same but with the Serial ports.
I just installed a HWIC-2T in a Cis co 3845 running IOS 15.1(3) T New build.The IOS self installed the port configuration including the command line "clock rate 2000000." I can edit everything but that entry using the CLI. When I enter the "no clock rate" it will not take in the running conf.
I need to connect to the console port on a cisco firewall, an rj-45 connector. The cable is a rj-45 at one end and a serial on the other. My PC has no serial port and I am unable to use the provided cable to connect to the firewall appliance. Is there software that can allow serial over my PC's Ethernet? I really don't have time to order a serial card for my PC.
Just want to ask if 4-port serial HWIC-4T is compatible for the Cisco 2801?We need additional HWIC for Fast Ethernet but the problem is we don't have already slot for it.We already have two HWIC-2T 2-port serial which is inserted at slot 1 and slot 3. We're planning to buy 4-port HWIC-4T so we can use the slot 3 for HWIC Fast Ethernet.if it's possible to have the 4-port serial HWIC-4T be inserted to Cisco 2801.

I have a 'DSL-2640U WIRELESS G ADSL2+ 4-PORT ROUTER'.I was using a DSL connection earlier, now I have moved to a ADSL connection.And I have been told by the service provider to get a different router with an ADSL input port.Can I use the same router for the ADSL connection using any converter or connector.
I have a D-link WBR-2310 wireless router connected to a ZyXEL P-600 series modem. Everything worked fine untill a couple days ago when I had a power surge; since then the wireless router won't show on the modem that the ethernet cable is plugged in, and I get no wireless or DSL internet. I called the internet service provider, and they told me to reset both the modem and the router, which I did and it worked fine for about an hour; then it didn't recognize the cable again. I thought maybe it was the ethernet cable itself so I bought a new one, and it didn't correct the problem. When I hook any of the cables up directly from the modem to the labtop or the pc the ethernet light comes on and I have internet connection again. Why doesn't my router recognize the cable?
I have a laptop having wifi & a desktop .I have purchased a "D-link WIRELESS N 150 USB ADAPTER" for desktop.some time ago my both pc are connected by LAN cable..but now i want to connect them via wireless..
I have a 1905 series cisco router, when I run "sh int" command it gives me following details -
MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1544 Kbit/sec, DLY 20000 usec, reliability 254/255, txload 7/255, rxload 151/255 Encapsulation PPP, LCP Open Stopped: CDPCP Open: IPCP, loopback not set
let me know the significance of txload and rxload.This router is used for MPLS connectivity.Link is working OK..but I'm not able to understand exactly what is the above txload and rxload signify.There is also one peculiar phenomena occuring, when my reliability goes down then rxload also goes down or might be vise versa.
I have a host machine (Laptop, Win 7 Home Premium x64) running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on VMWare Workstation 9. I've got this system set up for UMDF driver development, because I need a target machine to debug drivers on. However, because I'm developing drivers for Win 7 (x86 and x64), I cannot connect to the virtual machine on via a simple network connection. Connection methods are outlined here.
I have tried a few different pieces of software (mostly Eltima software), and have Google'd every combination of phrases that I can think of. I can't find any information on this anywhere. I don't just need to share data between the machines, I need a more "physical" connection.
Does any know how to do this, or if there's another (preferably more simple) way of doing it?
I have two 2950 Switches and am trying to connect via my laptop. My laptop doesn't have a serial port so I am trying to connect through the ethernet port, with a straight through cable and on the end as it goes into the console port I have bought a cisco console rollover adapter.When I turn on terra term I get nothing...just a black screen and it disconnects.
I'm facing the following doubt regarding the AC Power Connector on the 1522 AP.We are powering up the AP through PoE, so the AC Power Connector is not used.BUT,do i have to seal/protect the connector or leave it as is?
There is no "blinking light" indication on my E3000 at the Internet (Yellow label) and Ethernet port no 4. I tried plugging in 2 cables at all of the ports. I got the blinking indication at Port 1 through 3. The same cable's have no response at Port 4 and Internet port. As a result my I am not able to connect to the internet.
I've been using a WRT120N on a local area connection.The WRT120N acts as a gateway and also to connect to the PPOE connection, via a bridged adsl modem.I've noticed that the LAN port 1 was flashing although the network cable was disconnected from the physical port. I've restarted a few times but to no avail as well. Ever since that, I've noticed that connection through cable are unstable and hard.Now, I'm not able to reset or upgrade the router's firmware.Is there any other way to be done so that I can get this router working as normal again.
I Just bought this Linksys Modem/Router and i still can´t believe that my cheap dlink DIR600 or my OLD SAGEMCOM can set IP to all my machines but this WAG120N cant!and Worse, how will i set port forward if i don't know which IP the machine will get?is there any firmware or MAGIC ??
I have a lynksys Router WAG325N Wireless+ADSL2 .... It was working fine till last week.. Now its not working, When I reset I can connect through wireless on IP 192.168.1.1... But I cannot connect with lan port(checked with all the ports).. Even its not pinging...My system firewall is turned OFF... I am using a straight Cable.. I Updated the firmware.. but same result.. I dont know more about configurations.. Is it hardware issue or configurations?..
Last night, my internet was working perfectly and I closed my computer lid before going to sleep as usual. This morning, I wake up to use my computer and the internet isn't working. I check the icon at the top and instead of showing an empty wireless meter with an X over it, it shows a computer and a cable with an X over it, which isn't normal. My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5532 with a built in wireless adapter and it has a button near the power button that turns the adapter on and off. I decided to turn it off, give it a while, and turn it on, but that didn't fix it, so I restarted the computer.
Now, when I try to turn it on an off, it gives the wireless symbol with a circled X over it. I have checked the device in Device Manager to see if it is working and it says it is working properly. So I uninstalled it, restarted and the computer automatically installed software like it should, but that didn't fix it. I tried a System Restore, but that didn't work as well. Another thing I should mention is that I have tried rolling back the driver (which didn't fix anything), then I updated it, which also didn't fix anything.
Is there anything else I should try? The only thing Diagnostics can detect is an unplugged cable, but it's built in, so it doesn't require a cable (I've had it for >1 year and this is the first problem I've had).I downloaded Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and it says no wireless adapters can be found.
