    Hi all, I have a question concerning trancievers
    with my cisco 25xx routers. In order for me to
    connect the ethernet ports to them I of course need
    tranceivers. My question is can I use some of the
    old style Mac cables vs. buying new little tranceivers.

    see examples below.....


    If you are unsure of what I am talking about look at links here:

    AUI to Ethernet tranceiver:

    Thanks in advance,
    - Jay

    According to this web page, the AAUI has a different pinout and
    probably a different connector, so it would not work.

    You should be able to find the little tranceivers cheaper than that.

  3. No, Mac is AAUI, which are tiny little things compared to AUI. Same
    idea, same execution, just a different connector. You'll spend way
    more than $10 to get some sort of adaptor (if one even exists) from
    AAUI to AUI that the Cisco has.

    But, the 2nd link you posted to the AUI transceiver will work just
    fine. I've used those particular models way in the past.
