Cisco 2501 router Can't connect through Hyperterminal
Posted on 2004-10-01
I just bought a 2501 Cisco Router off of Ebay. I hooked it up and I am getting no responce out of the router. I have a ethernet to serial adapter, a rollover cable that I created with CAT5, connected to the console port on the router. OK LED light is ok, fans spinning but no responce from the router. Hyperterminal connection settings are as follows 9600 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, i've tried both 1 and 2 stop bits, and none for flow control. What am I missing? Is the cable the problem? I used a CAT5 rollover instead of a flat rollover? Could my router be dead? Please help.
