    I've previously ask this question however i did not get a reply.

    I have a module that interfaces using;
    1) MII PHY
    2) GPSI PHY
    3) MII Host/DTE

    I've searched typical Ethernet transceivers to communicate using the
    MII PHY. However, the Ethernet interface circuit is taking for too long
    to build.

    I was wondering can i use the simple RS232?

    I seem to remember replying - my apologies, I was netless for a few

    The short answer is you do not have (listed above) a RS232 interface.
    You have an ethernet (802.3 actually) interface. There may be a serial
    port on the unit.

    What is the device?

    I took a look at the device and your only option to make it work is to
    have a host interface to control it (and that's a host interface that
    knows how to control an ethernet device via the usual methods). One
    option is to get a MII compatible PHY and configure it across ethernet,
