What is it and what is it for?


This is a Cisco 2514 router with 8MB DRAM and 8MB flash.


See here for more detailed information



What is included?


You get the router, a Cisco console cable and a power cable.


It doesn't have rackmount brackets included, and it's missing the Cisco badge on the front.


Note that the network connectors are AUI (DB15) type (as with all of the Cisco 2500 series). To connect to a "standard" ethernet network, you'll need a transceiver.


At the time of initial listing, I am listing (separately) a few AUI/RJ-45 transceivers and a few sets of rackmount brackets. This is so that you don't have to pay the extra for these if you don't need them. As noted in the listings for these, if you buy one of them with a router, you can have them for a better price ($10 for the transceiver and $5 for the brackets) and no extra postage. Just use the eBay "best offer" facility after buying a router and I'll guarantee to accept the lower price if you've bought a router to match (as long as they last).


I have some X.21 and V.35 cables as well, and I'm happy to list them at a good price if you want them. However, these are not included in the lot you're bidding on.


My photos usually show the complete contents of what is included in the auction. If you think something else that's not shown should be included, don't assume it is. Contact me via this site and ask before bidding.


Sometimes I have more than one of the same item and I only take a photo of one. This means that, while the photo is of an item the same as that in this sale, it may not be the actual one I send you. It will not be any inferior to the photo, and should be virtually identical.


If you're bidding internationally, note that any power cord/adaptor etc will be a standard Australian type. I will not usually include the cord when sending overseas (this keeps your shipping cost down). If this is a problem, contact me before bidding.




Cosmetically, this is in good condition. It's not new so there are a few scratches, scuffs and marks on it. There may be remnants of labels on it. It's missing the Cisco badge from the front panel. Of course, none of this affects its operation.


I have tested it by connecting to the console and resetting passwords/factory defaults and it's working fine under those circumstances.


I have found with pretty much all of these "older" 2500-series routers they can be a bit temperamental in starting up from cold and I'm not guaranteeing that this one won't be the same. They can sometimes take 5 or 10 mins to decide to start. However, once they start, they seem to be quite reliable (and that's certainly included in my warranty)


I'll give a 30-day DOA warranty. If it doesn't work 100% (except for any issues noted in this listing), I'll refund your money and pay for postage to return it. I can only offer this to buyers within Australia, but if an International buyer has a problem, I'm happy to negotiate.


Detailed information about the item

The router has the following connections:

Console (RJ-45) for configuration and control - RJ45 - D9 cable required

Aux (RJ-45)

Serial 0 (DB60)

Serial 1 (DB60)

       I think these two can have X.21, V.35, etc connected to them. If you need one of this type

         of cable, contact me - I may be able to list one for you at a good price.

AUI 0 (DB15) to connect to local network.

AUI 1 as above

General conditions

International buyers are responsible for any customs duty, etc. I'll describe the item and price accurately on the customs declaration. You'll also need to confirm, before you bid, that the item is permitted to be imported.


Due to some bad experiences, I have had to block bidders from a couple of countries. If you find yourself in this situation, and you're serious, contact me and, if your rating is OK, I'll make the appropriate arrangement so you can bid.


I always leave feedback.


Any questions, please contact me via this site.

OK ….. here’s the deal ….


What do I expect from you?


If you buy the item, I expect you to contact me within 3 days and arrange to pay within 7 days. I need you to provide me with a correct address for me to send the item. When you get the item and you’re happy with it, I’d appreciate feedback on the eBay site.


What can you expect from me?


I value my eBay rating and I have every intention of providing good value for you. I recognize that you’ve only seen a photo and read my description of the stuff you’re buying. I’m sure there are odd cases where I have omitted to put in something that you may consider important but I’ve just forgotten or maybe didn’t realize was important. You’ll only find this out when you get the stuff.


If there is some unforeseen discrepancy between what you’ve expected and what you get, I’ll usually refund your money. If it’s obviously my fault, I’ll also refund your postage. If it’s worthwhile, I’ll also pay for you to send it back. Note that this only applies to “unforeseen discrepancies”, i.e. it doesn’t cover things that were in the item description, or could be seen in the photo.


I’ll leave feedback on the eBay site for you. If all goes as well as it nearly always does, it will be positive. If someone doesn’t pay I will use the eBay Unpaid Item process and, if it goes to completion without payment, you may receive an Unpaid item Strike which could affect your ability to buy stuff on eBay.


Shipping costs and details


The following applies unless I have specified shipping costs as being fixed (usually only within Australia). eBay will calculate the postage based on my measurements of weight and size of the parcel. This will be based on best estimates. Sometimes, when I get to the Post Office, they’ll charge me slightly more or less. If it’s more, I’ll wear it. If it’s less, I’ll offer you a refund if the difference makes this worthwhile (usually if it's above about $2).


I'll try to get the best pricing for postage (on your behalf) and that may sometimes mean that I need to slightly deface the packing (box, etc) of the item, for example by putting packing tape or an address label on it. If you want to keep the packing looking as pristine as possible (for example, if you plan to resell it, or give it as a gift), please tell me when you buy it and I'll pack it differently. Packing or postage costs may be slightly different in this case. Again, please ask first if this is likely to be a problem.
