hired at an office with network allready in place, including a 1720 router. I would like to see/edit the config for the router but dont know the pass word and the person who set it up is long gone. Is there any way i can find out any passwords or reset them with out harming the existing config (except the password fields of corse).

thanks!

Pretty straightforward process. The only "issue" is that you have to power cycle the router.

Here's the link with the details:

and this will not hurt my current config in anyway, besides changing the pass correct?

Follow the steps, taking particular care at step 10 (as the cisco site says "important" !). This is the step that makes sure that you retain the existing config.
