It is not possible with V35 cable as it is syncronous interface and PC have RS232 (asyncronous)
You should use RS232 cable for your router (800 series have both sync/async interface) but it will be pain in the back :)
Better get second router and 2 x V35 cables  (DTE and DCE)

Also, you can use converter V35 to RS232 but Cisco RS232 cable will be cheaper ...

Smart serial interface is not for the connection to PC!
You can connect it to the modem, multiplexer or another router but not to the PC
Only way to connect Smart Serial interface to PC is to use RS232 cable but as I told it will be headache!

you should buy WIC1-T interface card for your 1600 series router and V.35 DCE cable
Then you have to configure both of your router - thats it.
