I am trying to reset a 2948g to factory defaults. Tried follow a method out of the online manual and it does not seem to work. One of the first steps was to issue a write erase command and this seem to just start a help screen.

write erase will reset the router to factory defaults. When you reload the router, it will start the initial configuration wizard. If this is not working, can you post what apears when you type the write erase command?

wr erase is not a valid command in cat os and the 2948G cannot run ios also the 2948G is a switch and not a router

computer techie gave the correct info for resetting the switch to factory defaults
