I've done password recovery on switches, but routers seems more complicated.

1. Ok, I boot up router and press CTRL break
2. I type "o"
3. Then I type  "o/r  new_ configuration_ register_ here"

What next?  Is there anyone that can put it in layman terms?
Thanks

ps:  When I do the CTRL break, my hyperterminal seems to lock. I can't type "o" . I actually cant type anything. Ideas? Wasnt always like this

Are you using Windows XP?  You may want to try Hilgraeve's version of HyperTerminal...
