    Netgear GSM7224 24PORT L2 MANAGED Gigabit SWITCH

    I am about to take delivery of one of the above units (used) for home use and looking at the manuals I am not sure how I will be able to connect to the console port to configure the switch as I used mostly macs and the only PC I have does not have a com port.

    I believe one can get the cable with an USB connection at one end - sorry this is really a noob question but is there a special name for this type of connector that this will work with.

    Any advise would be much appreciated.

    Brgds/Tony.

    Hi Tony,

    Suspect you're after a usb-serial adapter mate.

    Something like:

    I'm sure a mac user on here will be able to help locate one that a mac works with.

    No prob fella.

    There might be a web panel you can access on the switch too to do some stuff but I'm altogether not familiar with netgear kit I'm afraid!
