We have a single Cisco 851W router, it was working fine until we needed to make a change and discovered we no longer had the passwords for it -- so we attempted the password recover procedure and lost everything.
Since the router no longer seem to be working we decided to restore Factory Defaults in the hopes of using the Cisco SDM GUI to reconfigure it after the fact.
We ran a "write erase" command followed by a "reload".
To our surprise this rest the router to a Factory Default which was not the same as the "Out-Of the Box" configuration.
Plugging a network cable into FE0 and setting my laptop to network settings of 10.10.10.2 / 255.255.255.0 using either a straight-through cable or a cross-over cable returns "Request timed out." when attempting to ping 10.10.10.1.
I ran out to chapters bought a couple books in Cisco and have been scouring the net for instructions as to how to manually reconfigure the router to a minimum level such that I can ping it and then use the SDM software.
Please help and giving me an IOS set of script commands to configure my router to enable SDM access again?
