Re: AUI socket? how do i convert to "standard" cabling?

What you need is a device called a tranceiver. It is a small box that plugs directly into the AUI port and presents an RJ45 socket on the other end. They work well but are prone to disconnects on the AUI port when nudged.

You can get then reasonably cheaply at most electrical suppliers.

All the best

just be sure to set the switches on the unit as follows

1 & 3 = on

2 & 4 = off
