For my laptop i purchased an adapter to connect the console cable to my USB port. Works great

is there any other way to do this
The switch may have an IP address assigned to it for management purposes.  which you can then telnet to.  alternatively, you would need to use the consol cable supplied with the switch, and obtain a  serial-to-usb adapter to connect tot he concole cable and make it into a usb connection.
