ROUTER 3600

initially on boot up of router it prompted for a username & password which I do not know.

so i rebooted and did:
- ctlr-brk - which got me into rommon mode

i then entered:
- confreg 0x2102, as the configuration register was set to 0x2142, this would not work and stopped in rommon mode at all times.

i then did:
- o/r 0x2102 - this did something so I rebooted, but now I get combildiguuk on the screen and it now hangs in this position.

do anyone know how I can get myself out of this so i configure router completely from scratch?

It sounds like you were going down the right path. 2142 should have got you an unconfigured prompt. But here's the step-by-step procedure for a 3600:

Sounds like you inadvertently changed the speed on the console port when you changed the config-register. One thing you can do is start trying different speeds until you get legible characters.
