Router-switch connection question

I've 2500 series routers each with 2 serial, 1 AUI, 1 console and 1 AUX port. Using back-to-back serial and rollover cables, I consoled in and configured my routers. The routers can ping each other. Now my confusion: How do I now connect my configured routers to my switch for data transmission? I believe the AUI port is used in this case. Which means I need an AUI cable with 15 pins at one end and an RJ-45 at the other end. Am I right? What's the name for this AUI cable? I searched Ebay for Cisco AUI cable with no luck.

Hi Frined,

I think you can go for a tranceiver which will connect to the AUI port and the other end of the tranceiver will have RJ45 so after that you can use straight through cable to connect from rj45 port of tranceiver and your ethernet port of switch.

I think this link may help you

Check this link for some modem numbers for tranceivers
