I have a Linksys SRW 2024 switch but no serial cable, how can I get/buy one?

I bought My SRW 2024 on the internet, it is delevered to me without the serial cable. How can I get/buy such a cable?

I need the cable because I made a mistake and the switch is not manageble by web because of that any more. The management is connectet to a vlan where no ports are connected to any more.

Thanks for helping.

I would recommend contacting your distributor/vendor for a cable as one should be included with all valid orders.  Barring that any standard 9-pin (DB9) serial cable that could be purchased from an electronics dealer such as Frye's Electronics, Micro Center, etc. should suffice.

Yeah, it definatly should have come with one.

However, I believe the SRW has a male serial port on it.

So, if you wanted to pick a serial cable up your self, it would be a straight through female-female serial cable (as opposed to a null-modem serial cable).

Hey team,

Here is a similar link by 'Super Dave':

If you have a pair of the db9 adapters, you can try a straight cable in between.
