Console question

Alright ... please don't make fun of me. My laptop only has usb, rj45, and rj11 ports on it. Is there any way to console into a switch/router with it? Is there any adapter I can get to make this work?

You can get something cheaper elsewhere too.

THANKS! With this adapter, using hyperteminal, what do I choose under the drop down menu for "connect using" in the "Connect To" window?
