I have a 1900 Switch, 2501 Series Router and 2 Ethernet Transceiver.
Can someone explain how to connect these 2 Cisco devices together in
detail, that they can communicate with each other. Any help is
appreciated, thanks.

I'll give you the starting point from a hardware perspective -- use a
straight-through ethernet cable with RJ45 plugs.  Put one RJ45 end into
a switch port.  Put the other RJ45 end into an ethernet transceiver and
connect the transceiver into the ethernet multi-pin port on the 2501
router.  Next, make sure you've got a console cable...
