Do you mean you're trying to do <CTRL><BREAK> on the router console upon boot up ?  What router is it ?

you may need to use the function key also, and Break is normally located on the same key as pause...I think.  So <Ctrl><Fn><Break> might be the key combo.
There is no Pause/Break key on those laptops. Reminds me when IBM made the Lenovo brand and refused to put a "Windows" key. There is a work around though. The easiest way is just to use the on-screen windows keyboard. Click on start --> Run (or windows key + R) and typ OSK and hit enter. That launches the simulated keyboard with a pause button that you can use just fine.
