Are there other ways I could back up a config off of a router other then assigning an IP to an interface and connecting to the laptop? All my interfaces are taken and I cannot disconnect them. Can I get the config via console connection? Any other ideas?

A clue might help... What make/Model router is it? It may have a separate management port OR allow config download from a web interface.

what kind of router is it? you said interfaces are down so I'll assume its a Cisco router, you can log into the router via console and copy the running config to notepad, save for later use.  that's only option if you do not want to assigned an interface.

If you have PPPOE passwords, you should copy startup-config to the clipboard. This is the only way to save username and password in clear text.

is exporting the config (copy running-config tftp ########) the same as doing show run or show start-up config? Except, you can just import it and be done with it instead of physically configuring everything form the configuration file?
