Cisco Routers and Switches

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I purchased a couple of cisco routers and a switch. My laptop doesn't have a COM port so that i can connect to the console port on the cisco devices. Could i use something like a rollover cable or anything to connect or do I have to purchase an adapter like USB to COM. Im look for some type of ethernet cable config that will work other than the USB to COM. But I will do whatever is needed.
