I recently bought a big box of surplus computer
parts at our universities surplus auction for $10.00.
It consisted mostly of sound cards and video cards, a couple of
external modems, mice,keyboards, etc that had been upgraded to fancier
models; about thirty items in total.
( I have a friend in the IT department that did a lot of the upgrading
so I know generally where they came from) As  well as the things
mentioned above I got three Allied Telesis CentreCOM  AT-210TS Micro
Transceivers.
I know they are Ethernet Transceivers , but how do they work?
I am familiar with the twisted pair connector at one end but I have
never seen a 15 pin D connector that is on the other end.
I got a copy of the owners manual and it says it a DTE connector.
This means an RS-232 connector to me, but as I said I have never heard
of a 15 pin RS-232 connector before.
