What I was told through the mfg. was:
pins 1,8 =NC
pins 2,7= Chassis Ground
Pin 3= TX-
Pin 4= TX+
Pin 5= RX-
Pin 6= RX+

This would actually be a RJ45 (8pin) but uses the 6 pin cable and only 4 com wires.
Evidentally there is no standard for the pin usages for serial communications with RJ connectors. So this information might not be valid for other equipment.

Hi Mr Q,

You would need a big check-up on:

1. PLC (Comm card - Prosoft ?)
2. Modems
3. Multiplexers
4. Optical Cables
5. RS232 Cables
6. Comm Port Spliter (MOXA?)
7. SCADA System (Oracle Database ?)

Please let me know your above check-up results so I provide further help.

All the leds are lit up but the online led keeps blinking.

This light pattern indicates that the modem can not establish a connection to your internet service provider (ISP). This is typically do to a signal related issue. To trouble shoot the problem you will need to connect the modem directly to the main cable line where it first enters into the home. This process is known as bypassing the splitters. You will know when the modem establishes a connection by the top 4 lights becoming solid green. If bypassing your splitters resolved the issue than you will need to replace the malfunctioning splitter. Typically splitter only cost a few bucks and can be purchased from any electronic store. If at any point all 4 top green lights start to blink in sequence than you will need to contact your internet service provider to "unwall the modem". Remember most internet service providers require you to register new modems on there network. So if you have not all ready completed that process you will most likely not have access. If you can not get a connection from the main line than there is a issue with either the modem or the signal coming into the home and you will need to contact your internet service provider.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.

Help me plz

cisco routers make use of an IOS software for configurations.

you have to connect the router to a computer system through an hyper terminal program in order to access the router command interface,there is no way you will be able to configure this router without having cisco configurations knowledge.

the steps could be complex/complecated for a novice.but all the same,

after running the hyper terminal program on your computer to connect the router(start-accessories-communication-hyper terminal) make sure you use cisco serial cable or a cat5e roll over cable.

press the enter key once and type 'enable' then press enter,

configure terminal,to take you to a global configuration mode.

i will advice that you should contact a cisco person in your area for help
