RJ-45 is used for many types of connectors.

The Cisco Console cable is a RS-232, serial port. The adapter you bought is probably a USB to Ethernet adapter. They are completely different.

You can use a USB to serial port adapter to add a 9-pin port to your computer but apparently all USB to DB9 cables are NOT the same and do not properly pass through all required commands.
