I have a remote time clock that connects to a serial port on a pc.  I need the timeclock and the pc to be in different locations.  I am looking to convert the rs232 to ethernet and then go through router/broadband/router to pc location and the convert back to serial.  What would be the best way to do this or is there a better alternative?

hmmm.....Just how much distance?  Is it in the same building (maybe use shorthaul modems), on the same floor (seral port extenders, or further apart than that?
