USB to RJ-45 console cable?

Hi All,

I know have read numerous threads on Google goups and cannot come up with an answer on this one.

I have already read and seen that there are cables/adapters that go from USB to DB-9. That would allow you to connect your standard serial console cable as you normall would. I am trying to find a way to eliminate this.

I would like to buy/make a cable that will have a USB connector on one end and an RJ-45 on the other. I'm not sure if it is as easy as cutting off a connector on the usb and just terminating the RX/TX/GND like you can do with a serial cable (DB-9).

I know there may be some issues with going from USB to rs-232 signaling and I could always build some kind of breakout box in the middle.

Any thought?????
