Take a regular straight-through ethernet cable with RJ-45 connectors. Connect one end to the switch and the other to the ethernet (or fast ethernet) port of the 2600.

Did I get it rgith? Are you connect 2 routers and 1 switch together to form what?

Since you are connecting hatrogenious devices as donjohnston mentioned you need a straight-through cat-5 with RJ45 connector. If you ave connecting 2 similar devices than either the devices has a build-in capbilit to select cros-over or you have to use a cros-over cable.

good luck
