I am trying to access a 2960 thru the console. I have a console cable with a USB adapter.
I have tried both COM1 and COM 3 listed using default config as well as trying diff Baud rates and Xon Xoff. Hyperterm show connected but no display. Putty also does not show any signs of life.

I have pwr'd down and held MODE until Amber, still no success. Please advise.

Thanks

Depends on whose USB adapter you're using. I use a Keyspan adapter and it shows up as Com4.

Unless the console setting of the switch was changed, it should be 9600, N,8,1.

As craigbeck said:
9600 baud
8 data bits
1 stop bit
No parity

No changing of other stuf

To check which com port the usb device is on, use the windows device manager and find the device or port there, then you can be sure you are using the correct com port
