Hi,

I have a Cisco 1811W router and I would like to set it to factory defaults so I can access it.  I don't the ip and I don't have any of the enable username/password.  When I connect to the console port and restart the router, it asks me for the username and password which of course, I don't have.

How can I factory default this unit without having the enable privileges?

Thanks.
