    Yes, the access server has ethernet port on it. You can also get a USB to Serial adapter to works really well from amazon for under $20.

    Something like this - http://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-RS-23...dp/B0007T27H8/

    I went ahead and purchased one off of ebay for $60.00 shipped. Probably from the same seller in Texas.

    I do wonder if there are any newer wireless cards that will work with it. It would be nice to be able to use my laptop from anywhere in the house and be able to practice.

    Nope, I've contacted Digi Support and they said there are no updates available for these at all. I tried compiling updated pcmcia card manager for these but there is basically no room for anything else on the box.

    I was pleasantly surprised DIGI looked at the issues I was having and provided some support even though it's out of warranty and all.

    Yours too most likely will arrive w/o drivers loaded for the pcmcia cards, look at my other thread with steps on getting them on there if you want to try the short list of cards it supports.

    You can add a wep2 etc AP and just have it connect to it using ethernet port

    Hey all, I just picked one of these up and it looks really nice. Does anybody know how to change the timeout when accessing via SSH? I get kicked out after about 1:30 of inactivity and I haven't yet figured out how to change that. I don't really like accessing through the web interface so I'd prefer to get in by SSH.

    Under Serial Port > Configuration, click on the port # and the timeout value is under host mode configuration.

    Mine is on order. I offered the ebay seller 20 dollars less than what he posted it for.

    Surprisingly he accepted.

    EXTREMELY LIGHT USAGE is in the description.

    EXTREMELY LIGHT USAGE -- needed a good laugh. If its been plugged in and powered up for the past 5 years, that's still 43,800 hours. Not exactly light usage on it. Maybe just the web interface was light -- they couldn't get it to stay connected (idle timeout) more than the default 90 seconds. I have one and have that as a problem even after setting the config to 0 (don't disconnect). Might be my version of java on the computer I'm using since I had to go with really old java for SDM.

    ^^I had the exact same problem. I must have done something wrong previously, I don't know, but basically I did what Zartanasaurus said to do above and that fixed it. Now I stay logged in as long as the timeout is set on my switches/routers, but the Digi CM doesn't ever kick me out.

    I connect via SSH, but the timeout can be applied for SSH or web sessions so that shouldn't matter, just make sure you have it set correctly for whatever profile you are using to log in (root, admin, user, etc.)

    I had ordered it and it arrived the day after I picked up a 2610 locally that had an NM-16a in it (found it on craigslist). I was originally thinking to resell it on ebay until I ran into the timeout thing. Since then, I mounted it in my rack and have been using it with no problems and don't need to deal with java versions. Just took me a while to track down that "ctrl-shift-6 x" key sequence to bounce between sessions.

    If it's in a brown box, then it's probably content not safe for work.

    Use ethernet port and try the default ip address (in the manual) OR you have to use cat5 + 9pin to rj45 adapter, Cisco console cable won't work.

    Yep same here You can change the ip to whatever you want to match your lab environment or whatnot.

    It doesn't have to be connected to my home router does it?

    Telnet won't budge. I might run out and grab that adapter.


    I ALWAYS forget to troubleshoot stuff on the first layer. I have been using a straight through cable this entire time. I'll wait till my crimpers come in tomorrow and make a rollover.

    LOWES of Home Depot have crimpers. Atleast, I picked mine up from LOWES.

    I ordered one over the weekend and it will be here tomorrow.

    Monoprice, 7 bucks, great reviews. The lowes here has one for 40, and that's the cheapest.

    I went to Fry's and got a 9pin to rj45 adapter (the one where the wires aren't connected on the serial end, and you have to solder them) for $2.99 and pulled out my soldering station, few minutes later (pdf has the pin-outs needed) and I had console access No crimpers needed.

    Never touched a soldering iron haha. When it comes to tools, I'm currently building my "database" of them.

    If you want to connect directly to the Ethernet port with a cable from a desktop/laptop, you that cable has to be a RJ-45 crossover cable. That is how I was able to connect initially. You have to do the factory reset on it, and then make sure your desktop/laptop has the NIC card set manually to an ip address on the same subnet as the the default IP of the DiGi CM32. Once you do that, connect to the default IP of the DiGi CM32 with a web browser (https://192.168.161.5). From there you should be able to login with the default user/password combo, and change the settings.

    Can you link me to the manual you used?

    Something is not right here and it's really annoying me. I just made a crossover cable and I have no idea why it's not working. No idea how to connect it. I've read this manual 4 thousand times over and still nothing.
