Cisco 2600

Hello,

Can anybody out there give me a hand with a Cisco 2600 router?

I received this unit from a friend of mine and it was password protected. As it was not used in a long time he had forgotten the password. I opened the box and I saw a pair of jumper pins with the word “reset” next to them and decided to put a jumper on and powered the unit up.

Previous to doing so, I was connecting to the unit using HyperTerminal and was able to send information to it using my keyboard. After executing what I thought was the reset function and trying to connect, once again with HyperTerminal, I could not longer send info using keyboard as I did before.

It says "Press RETURN to get started!" I hit return but nothing happens.

Please help

Thanks

Did after powering it on move it back? Also that only resets the console speed, not the password. Here is a link for that.

Sometimes you just have to be patient. The system is still booting up when you see that.
What happens if you wait 30 seconds before hitting enter?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You didn't hit the scroll key by some chance?

Are you sure you have the correct pinout on the com port adapter? It appears that the router is not accepting any keyboard commands?

Hey that scroll lock key gets a lot of people aggravated, just last week someone who works with me was having a real fit because the gateway he was trying to configure stopped responding to commands, he had hit the scroll lock key and didn’t realize it until I pointed it out to him.
