I recently purchased a laptop without a DB9 and do work frequently with Cisco routers. Is there a method to connect to a console port on a router without a DB9 port on my laptop?

Yes, visit a computer shop and purchase a USB to RS232C Serial Adapter Cable. I use ATEN and I have it for 3 years

Thats what I was thinking but I was hoping there was a way to connect directly from my Ethernet connection. Thanks.

You will need console access first before you can configure the router to have network access.
