This section describes the Ethernet cables that are used to connect the router to your local Ethernet network. A 10/100BASE-TX router, such as the Cisco 815 integrated services router, requires Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) or shielded twisted-pair (STP) cable. Table B-1 gives the pinouts for an Ethernet cable.

Console Cable and Adapter
A console cable is provided with your router. Use this cable to connect the router to a PC or terminal. The router comes with a DB-9-to-DB-25 adapter that may be used for connecting the router to a modem, using the console cable.
Table B-3 describes the wiring for the console port and the console cable. This table also includes pinouts for the DB-9-to-DB-25 adapter.
