Hi

Is it for cisco labs? Buy a cable with one end as DTE (data terminal equipment) and the other end DCE

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1Meter-Cisco-Back-Back-DB60-Crossover-Cable-DCE-DTE-/330494096219?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item4cf2fbb35b

Search for DCE DTE cable on ebay and in most cases D60 will do check the router series and buy the right one. Good Luck

Hope this helps
