I have a Dell Powerconnect 3348 switch. I connected to the web interface and changed all ports to a different vlan. Thereafter I could no longer connect to the web interface. I connected a null modem cable to the switch and various computers but cannot connec to the console of the switch. I have found documentation on the switch and tried various settings but cannot connect. Please Help!

If you haven't saved the running-config to the startup-config after you changed the VLANs, a pwoercycle would revert it back.

Otherwise, check your com1 settings in hypterminal

Try 9600-8-N-1 with No Flow Control
Set the Emulation to VT100

You may try to power cycle the switch after you've connected to see if it helps

i tried to recycle the switch with the console cable connected. i have the console set exactly as in the documentation. no characters appear on the screen. i have multiple null modem cables so it isnt the cable. i cant connect with console not the web interface.

Yesterday the Web Interface would not even come up, today it magically appeared! I can log in to web interface but not console. For the points can you explain how to set up VLANS? I have a set of VMware servers that I want to seperate from all but 5 internal pc's. Those 5 must be on both VLANS. Dell Powerconnect 3348 switch.

Did that Link have sufficient information on setting up a VLAN on a Powerconnect for you?  It explains it pretty thoroughly
