Connecting a 2509 to the Internet

Unanswered Question

Hi Guys,

I am using a 2509 as my access server. It 2 Serials, aui, and a console port. I have 5 static IPs and i am trying to assign 1 to this router so I cann access this from outside my home.

But, my Comcast modem (Or my Linksys Router) has RJ-45 connector.

How do I connect this to the internet? Is there an adapter for the Serial (not the smart serials, see pic) to RJ-45?

Thanks in advance!

If I remember correctly, there's a converter module to allow the AUI to work with 10baseT (half duplex only).

That router is very, very old and does not have not even close to the perfomances needed for today broadband.
