Cisco 2600 cannot connect Hyperterminal

Hi,

I have a Cisco 2600 series router, which does not connect when I use Hyperterminal.
I use the following settings:

Bits per second - 9600
Data bits - 8
Partity - None
Stop bits - 1
Flow control - None

I am using a light blue rj-45 to rj-45 rollover cable.

I start the Hyperterminal connection, then start the router, but nothing appears.  I have tried multiple baud rates, and hit enter several times during the 'connection,' but nothing.

I thought the router was not functioning, so swapped for another, but have the same issue.

Please help!

On the computer where have you plugged the RJ-45 Rolleover cable, it needs to be connected to a serial / com port using a DB-9/25 connecter. You will also need to select the same COM port in hyper terminal.

When you turn on the router, do you see any lights comming on ?

What are you using for the 9-pin/RJ45 adapter? It might not have the proper pinouts unless it is from the Cisco kit.

I don't have a serial port on my laptop, and was of the understanding that i can use a rolled cable.  The cable is light blue, and I believe it is from cisco.

Flexible connectivity for any environment

The KE6900 series can extend and deploy computers with high definition displays across multiple stations in a variety of applications that suit any environment. Expand computer use to stations across multiple rooms with dynamic access.

You can only use the rolled cable from the serial port adapter to the console port of the router. You *cannot* use the cable directly from your Ethernet port to the console port.
Since you don't have a serial port on your laptop, one option would be to use a USB/Serial port converter adapter.
I've had good success with one of these:

You also need to make sure you are using a "DCE9F" 9-pin/RJ45 adapter.
