I am looking for a converter that can take ethernet and convert it to rs-232 or ttl. Lantronix has one that does fit the bill, but is a tad costly with all the extra features

Any advice?

What size? I mean, a PC could do that. Install linux, and log in from the serial port, or get SLIP up and running..

If only a tad costly, the new Xport Direct is a tad cheaper.

[NB: If one-off or low-volume, and if the Xport does what you need, balance the cost versus the time to roll-your-own. Or if a volume, check the Xport Direct pricing.]

If you want a simple Web server then there have been a number of them over the years. Take a look at Tuxgraphics, or EDTP.

I am looking for a board level 10/100 to ttl/232. The Lantronix is perfect, but as I said costly. I was hoping Smiley Micros would have something as he has the USB adapter, but nothing I could find

Why 10/100 ??

A 10mb would fill a RS-232 8..10 times , and most switches are 10/100 autosensing.

If you want plug and play, no hours of hacking software, the Xport Direct is the way to go.

True, most switches can do 10/100. My requirement is just a standard. Steve, I will look at the xport.

Thanks

How about the NGW100, it is based on a AVR32:

It is cheap and powerful and ships with Linux as a OS...

But after looking at this page:
http://www.lantronix.com/device-networking/embedded-device-servers/xport.html
I realize that it is way bigger...
