Hello

I need to access the CLI interface to my Cisco 1800 router. I am using hyperterminal, but can't seem to connect. I have this blue cable provided by my router that I've connected from my serial port to the console slot on the router. I know my serial port works since I've used it countless times to connect to other serial devices.  What am i missing?

In hyper terminal, make sure you select the correct COM1 port for the computers serial interface. on Most machines, if you have one 9-port serial connection, it should be COM1(but make sure)
second, use the following parameters:

bits per sec: 9600
data bits: 8
parity: none
stop bits: 1
flow control: NONE
