Hi,

I was wondering if someone can answer a few questions in regards to
connecting a Cisco 1924 Switch to a Cisco 2500 Router. I have a 1924
switch with 1 AUI, 1 console, and AUX port in the back,..... 24
10/Ethernet ports and 2 100/Ethernet ports in the front. I also have a
2500 series Router, it has 1 AUI, 2 serial interface, console port, and
AUX port in the back. My questions is as follows:

1.) What type of cable is need to connect a Cisco 1924 Switch to a
Cisco 2500 router?
2.) Can you describe what the cable looks like?
3.) Can you describe how the physical connect is setup using the Proper
cable?
4.) once the connect is established is there anything else that is
required for proper communication?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks again.

Real Simple

1) A straight through cable
2) Rj-45 (searxch google for pinout)
3) Huh?
4) configuring the ip address and subnet of the ethernet on the router

I think you still need to get a ethernet  module for that router though, i
don't think their is any other way of connecting a router to a switch with
out it.

You also need an Ethernet Transciever.  This is a little device about the size
of a box of paperclips.  It plugs into the 15-pin AUI socket on the 2500, and
presents an RJ-45 socket for the ethernet cable to plug into.

OR

(If you're really into antiques) You can get two thinnet ethernet transcievers,
plug one into the 2500 and one into the AUI port on the 1900, and connect the
two with coax!

I might have to do that just so I can say I've done it. :-)
Been networking since 1996, and still haven't had to deal with
coax....though purely by chance: the place I started my career had
thinnet and thicknet, but they never had a problem while I was there.
