I am trying to recover lost password for the Cisco 1721. I have all the documentation from Cisco and also some insight from a previous question. What I am missing is how to start a console session with the router.
I have a DB 9 to RJ45 cable here and have tried to HyperTerminal from three pcs. I am setting to 9600, 8, no parity, 1 stop bit, and none, as defined in the documentation. It immediately connects but it really isn't. I have tried to change com1 to com3 and such. What am I missing? I am supposed to connect and then reboot to get in to reset the password.
