Rated 5 out of 5 by Hammad Hassan from RJ45- Console cable I was looking for a solution to connect the switch console to my laptop. Instead of doing it traditional way I found the very solution its USB to RJ45 for console connectivity for almost every network switch and routers we have. I really love this product and recommend that every Network Engineer should have one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike from This is a great product!!! It's really easy to use. The driver is installed automatically on Windows10. It does require a restart though, which isn't really a big deal but might be an inconvenience if you are trying to use it for the first time during a maintenance window or something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FBM from It Works! No issues so far, much better than some larger USB to console dongles I've used. Very nice to no have multiple plugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pcdoc from Simple but elegant device. I knew one day I would have to retire my old Prolific USB to RS232 Interface. When I got the above unit I was skeptical, but that skepticism turned to joy when this unit lived up to its plug-and-play action. It look me longer to configure Putty than it did to configure this device in Windows 10. The only issue I had was there was no drivers CD as mentioned in the instructions . No worries . I just downloaded them from the Tripplite website - and the rest was history. Tripplite's products speak for themselves

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pete from Great Product; works perfectly I understand that this is billed as a "Cisco-compatible" cable. Nevertheless, I took a chance on it working with my MOTOROLA modem's Ethernet port...and guess what? IT DOES!!! I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Once in a while, things work out perfectly, and this is one of those times. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
