    Is there any way to access the console controls of a Cisco router when I've lost the console cable?

    I believe you can usually access them over the network. HTTP, SSH and/or Telnet should probably work. Failing that, assuming it's just a null modem cable you need, they are ridiculously cheap to replace.
