In rommon you can set better baud speed with
set BAUD <x>
of course you need to do so on terminal program and set the same value.

And after you finish it is recommended to set values to defaults (9600).
RS-232 Serial Port standard baud rates <x> from above:
    300
    1200
    2400
    4800
    9600
    14400
    19200
    28800
    38400
    57600
    115200

    230400
bold is preferred in my case. :)

You can use tftp or ftp to copy the IOS bin to router.

Looks like that is not exists as option on 1841:

rommon 7 > confreg
change console baud rate? y/n [n]: y
enter rate: 0 = 9600, 1 = 4800, 2 = 1200, 3 = 2400 [0]: 0

But there are others options available like Recovering the System Image (tftpdnld), or usb flash.

You need to change terminal software to match speed, otherwise you get garbage in terminal software.
If you still don't connect ... try other rates.
