Router Problem

I am currently running a cisco 2600 series router. I go through hyperterminal and configure all the appropriate setting to record the bootup process ( com1, 9600 rate, 1 on parity and hardware connection). Yet the router seems to loop as it trying to load. I haved tried control break to get into rommon with out success. Am I missing something?

Hello hreyes1037,

Have you tried pressing Esc? on some XP machines it wont wirk properly
Windows XP HyperTerminal is usually fine for Direct connection to your Routers and Switches etc, However when you are doing password recovery, it cannot sent the Ctrl+Break sequence required.

To save you going all round the houses for a solution, go straight here,

And use their HyperTerminal instead.
