Hi,

I have to obtain a show version for my CISCO CATALYST 3548-XL-EN.
Could you tell me how to proceed to do that (I 'm a real beginner).

I try to connect the router on my laptop (with consol port RJ45) but was not able to connect the router with MS Hyperterminal.
I don't know any login or password, or actual IP configuration.

Thanks for help.

OK, firstly, this is a switch, not a rouer.

Document to help you recover the passwords and log onto the switch:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps628/products_password_recovery09186a0080094184.shtml

Once you have logged onto the switch,  go into eneable mode, and tyoe the "show version" command

Did you use the blue rollover cable that was delivered with the router? You can't use a standard ethernet cable.
Set the serial settings to 9600 N-8-1.
Press enter a few times. If you see some output now,  just type "sh ver". Proceed to NicBreys comment, in case you don't know the password.

The only time you can use your NIC port to connect to a switch would be to set yourself a static IP on the same VLAN as the switch, connect to one of the UTP ports with a crossover cable, and telnet into the switch.  Effectively creating your own little network.  Just in case you lose your config cable.
