Is the device actually functional? Is the problem just that you can't talk to it or that it is not working at all?

If it is not functional, I would suspect that the firmware is corrupt or the memory is dodgy. If it is working, then maybe the port or the cable. When you say wall jack, are you referring to the prot on the device or is it going via some internal cabling?

You could try 38400 or 19200 in case it has been set to some odd setting. Is the box actually working? What model is it?

Do you try connecting using a different computer?

Maybe grab a copy of Putty and try that instead of Hyperterminal. What cable are you using to connect? It could also be a hardware fault. If you have it connected, set to 9600 and then restart the device, do you see any normal entries as it starts up?
