My client has a Asante Intracore 36240 switch and he is not sure what he did but the switch stop working. It loads passing the uncompressed stage; then it just hungs there. Is there a way to reset to the factory default and erase all the config? There is no reset button in the back of the switch. Thx

Did you try the alternative?

"If we don't have a console, things get a little trickier. Connect your
terminal emulator and bounce the switch. After it finishes the POST,
enter a Ctrl-U"

Could not get the Ctrl-U to work? It just loaded too fast.

You'll have to try a few times, since there doesn't seem to be any other way.  I don't have any other ideas, so contact Asante's support if you can't get in:

They don't want to provide support because the switch is end-of-support

I don't understand how they can't even tell you how to reset the switch - the least they can do is direct you to an FAQ or something.  This has to be a common question.  It looks like you'll have to keep trying the ctrl-U if Asante isn't going to help.
