Cisco 5508 wireless controller console cable

What type of cable is needed to use the RJ-45 console port on the Cisco 5500 series wireless controllers. The Hardware Installation guide mentions a null modem serial cable, which would be the same as the older 4400 series. The 2100 series uses the standard blue Cisco console cable, so I'm not sure what will be needed for the 5500 series.
Also, if connecting a laptop to one of the gig interfaces, does the laptop card have to be a gig card?

You can use the standard blue Cisco Serial-RJ45 cable.  The one that comes with any Cisco switch or the older 4400 WLC will work fine.
