Can someone explain how to wire a 25 PIN D-SUB DB-25 MALE TO RJ-45 FEMALE SERIAL ADAPTER?

I dont know where the eight wires from the RJ45 need to go on the 25 pin serial adapter??

Colours from RJ45 to pin numbers would be perfect.

Taat can depend on what the cable is to be used for.  In some cases only 4 wires are used for transmit and receive, but many are custom scenarios.

Might I assume you're thinking about a console cable?

Try this:

Console cable is 9 pin, is it not?

Argh, I used to be able to count :-~
Thx, Rob :)

But there are other console cables:

I'm trying to connect a console cable to a modem for external access to a Cisco Router.

Plug the standard console cable into the Cisco, put a DB9 to DB25 adapter on the other end, then DB25 m to DB25 m cable (or just a DB25 m-m gender changer) between the adapter and modem.

Presumably I can just use the Aux Serial cable to connect the Modem to the Cisco Router??

The Cisco router is a 2911.

Oops...  you'd also need a DB9 m to DB9 m gender changer.

I don't know what you mean by Aux Serial cable.

Here is what a standard cisco console cable looks like.

Oh, and here's a pinout to convert DB9 to DB25

DB9 to DB25 functions
So if you combine that with the RJ45 to DB9 pinout at

you should be able to build a cable as you originally asked.

Console cable to a modem?
I don't see that as working due to protocol diferences.
