CISCO Question HELP Me PLEASE>>&gt

By jcho ·
Hi, I've recently purchased CISCO 2505 router from Ebay. I've received the router today and found out the sender doesn't know the secret password. How do I reset the configuration or just simply change the password. When I try to console in it gives me a prompt that looks like WCFMC> It asks for the password if I try to enter a command.

Sometimes a default pass may still exist such as "Cisco".

I tried the links listed above and could not get the document they are talking about. I found the reference, which I confirmed.

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_fix/827/827swcfg/trble.htm#xtocid360011

This works because I have had to do this atleast once.

Sorry, for some reason my link failed to work also. Go to www.cisco.com -> in the search field at the top of the screen, enter the followin text: ENABLE PASSWORD RESET. The first item listed in the search results was titled troubleshooting. This is the reference.

Cisco 2500 Series Router Password Recovery Procedure
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/474/pswdrec_2500.html

Attach PC with hyper-terminal to router console port
Settings:
9600 baud
No parity
8 data bits
1 stop bit
No flow control

Turn router off and then back on

Press Break on terminal keyboard w/in 60 sec. of power-up to put router in ROMMON

Type o at the > prompt

Record the value of the config register (usually 0x2102, or 0x102)

Example:
>o
Configuration register = 0x2102 at last boot
Bit# Configuration register option settings:
15 Diagnostic mode disabled
...

Type o/r 0x2142 at the > prompt

Type i at the > prompt

Type no after each setup question

Type enable at the Router> prompt. You'll see the Router# prompt

Type config mem or copy start running - DO NOT type config term

Type wr term or show running

The show running and wr term commands show the configuration of the router

Type config term and make the changes

The prompt is now hostname(config)#

Type enable secret <password>

Issue the no shutdown command on every interface that is used. If you issue a show ip interface brief command, every interface that you want to use should be "up up"

Type config-register 0x2102, or the value you recorded in step 2

Press Ctrl-z to leave the configuration mode

The prompt is now hostname#

Type write mem or copy running startup to commit the changes
