Reset password for Cisco 1721 and now can't get back on Internet.

Hello all,

I followed the instructions provided by Cisco for resetting a password with a console session. I followed all the directions and now I can't get back on the internet. The light for the Ethernet connection doesn't come on anymore. I captured everything I did so hopefully we can solve this easily. I obviously need to be back up for Wednesday morning.

Here is what I did:

What about entering the no shutdown command for the interface? I'm no expert on IOS commands but hoping to learn more.

rsivanandanCommented:
Once you copied the configuration to running config, did you change the config register back ? If not, do that and reset the router again.

Then see 'show interfaces' to find out if all the interfaces are up, if not, go to individual interfaces and do 'no shut'

Cheers,

You should be changing your config register to 0x2102 to resume normal bootup (which executes the startup-config file)

I knew I was missing something...I was changing config register to 0x0 (paperwork default). I coudn't see where the config register settings were. I will give this a try and let you know (the downside of no internet is that I have to run home to get help).

skaap2kCommented:
FYI -

Here are the 2 most common config registers that I use:
0x2142 = Dont execute the startup-config file on boot - used in password recovery
0x2102 = Normal

I believe the rest of the bits determine console baudrate during bootup amongst other things.

is that why after I keep recievieng the "rommon 1 >" prompt  ?

skaap2kCommented:
More than likely, re-set your confreg to 0x2102, and it should boot properly again!

mburke3434Author Commented:
Ok I am back....changing my config register to 0x2102  worked. I now am able to enter using my newly reset passwords. Unfortunetaly the WIC0 is still down. I am not getting any light on the front and obviously no internet. I can't ping and I can't start an ip session.

It seems that all my original settings are in place and I believe just that interface needs to be not shutdown. This is what it says

--More--                           interface FastEthernet0
 --More--                            description To Office FastEthernet
 --More--                            ip address < IP Address > < subnet > secondary
 --More--                            ip address < IP Address > < subnet >
 --More--                            shutdown

  And this was the setting before I did anything:

 --More--                           interface FastEthernet0
 --More--                            description To Office FastEthernet
 --More--                            ip address < IP Address > < subnet > secondary
 --More--                            ip address < IP Address > < subnet >
 --More--                            speed auto

Am I right and how do I turn the interface back on?
0
 
skaap2kCommented:
Correct,

you just need to run a no shut on each interface - this is by design apparently.
so,

conf t
interface fastethernet0
no shut
interface serial0
no shut
^Z
copy run start

mburke3434Author Commented:
Worked like a charm! I do appreciate everything. I am going to award all the points to skaap2k because his answer was right on point and his follow up solved the next issue.

TO RECAP

I needed the Cisco light blue console cable to start the session (thank you Irmoore). Even though I had what I believe to be a console cable and I even tried to cut a rollover cable, the Cisco kit was the best way to go. Cost was 19.99 for cable and connectors. It was worth every penny.

This site to purchase was provided by Irmoore: (Thank You)
http://www.boxfire.com/acs2500asynbxf.html

The directions for password reset / recovery was provided by papimichel: (Thank You)
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps221/products_password_recovery09186a0080094773.shtml

Once reset I couldn't change the config register correctly. It wasn't default as stated in paper work but instead it was 0x2102 as provided by skaap2k. Unfortunately, it shut down my interface and that was rectified by skaap2k as well with this set of directions.

Enter enable mode

conf t
interface fastethernet0
no shut
interface serial0
no shut
^Z
copy run start

I am now in control of the router and can take the next steps to installing a domain instead of the peer to peer they have going here. Thanks all. I am sure I will have more questions soon....

Fantastic!

Glad to know it's all working,
The interface shutdown thing is normal during a password recovery, If i have time to spend, i prefer to decode passwords and not modify the config at all!
