Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

I totally appreciate all your help on this, and don't mean to be a pain, but I still cannot logon to the router.
Is there something else I need to do to setup my password as an enable password.
Thanks

How are you trying to access it, from console or from telnet?
How do you have the aaa authoriztion configured?
I guess I just don't fully understand what you are trying to do..

I am trying to telnet into the router.  I just want to set it up so my user account can have the ability to telnet into the router.
What is the aaa authorization?

What happens when you telnet to the router now? Do you get a username prompt, or just a password prompt?

Do you have any of these commands:
  aaa new-model
  aaa authentication login default local

If you don't have these, then you should not have a username prompt when you telnet to it.
To change the telnet login, you have to change it on the line
  line vty 0 4
   password <newpassword>

Unless you setup the aaa, you can't use your own username/password

When I telnet to the router I get a username prompt then a password prompt.
This is a Cisco 2600 router.
So currently my boss is using his username and password to connect via telnet, and I would just like to set it up so I can use mine.
