Hopefully this is a simple question: is there any way to reset an old Cisco 2600 router via hardware or a physical switch?  I have an older 2600 that I want to reset to go through the setup and configuration process on as part of my CCNA studying, and as I sit here I can't get console access to it (Win 8 usb driver issue... long story).  Hopefully the rommon approach isn't the only available option here.

Thanks.

No.  Unlike consumer grade devices, Cisco enterprise-class hardware does not have a reset switch.  You must get to the CLI to reset them.

Don, thanks for replying.

And darn.  :)  OK, guess I'll have to try it the hard way then.
