I have 2600 and I can access via web using http://routerinterface but if I telnet the password does not work. Can someone please help me get telnet access to this router?

In order to set up the router to allow Telnet access, use the line vty command. This command allows for the configuration of Virtual Terminal (VTY) lines for remote console access. You can configure the router to accept one or more Telnet sessions. It is strongly suggested that you configure password checking with the login and password line configuration commands. The example below configures the router to accept five sessions, with the password "letmein":

Router-2(config)#line vty 0 4
Router-2(config-line)#password letmein

you need to set the vty password put in a console cable and set the vty password :)

Also make sure that port 21 is not blocked by any access-lists and that telnet traffic is permitted though the vty interface.  For example I block telnet on my vty interface by using "transport input ssh".  You should have either "transport input all"(may not display if it's set to this on some versions of IOS), or have it set to "transport input "telnet".  If you have configured your router through the web interface I doubt this is the issue.  If you post you config we may be able to help you better.
