USB to RJ45 Cable for Console?

Does Cisco, or anyone else do a cable that will allow me to connect my USB only laptop to a console port on a Cisco device?

Thanks

Just do a google search for 'USB Serial' and you will find a lot of different models.

Here is one:

This type of cable is made but they are few and far between.  If there is still interest in in them please let me know.

It's similar to the product I pointed out before. Yes, it should work with Cisco devices.

I decided to make one of my own - see http://www.get-console.com/shop/en/18-usb-to-serial-cables

Embedded USB to RS232 chip in the USB housing and has native drivers for OSX, Win7 and Win8. RJ45 end pinned out for Cisco serial console port.

Cheers

Simon
