Cisco 2800 Password/User reset

PC4N6 asked
Last Modified: 2008-09-11
I have a new 2800 series router, and by default the username and password is cisco.  Cisco says to change it with the following CLI command:
username <myuser> privilege 15 secret 0 <my pass>

However I keep getting an error:  Invalid input

The error is at the first word "username"

Has anyone got any idea of why this is happening?
