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.

rjtaylor has given you the book answer, and it is correct, one gotcha to look out for:

Where the book says:

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

You sometimes have to adjust these settings to get your router to accept keyboard input from your computer that is attached to the console port. This is particularly true for Laptops and some KVM's. I had to change it to 2400,8,none,2,Noflowcontrol for my new 7140 cisco router before I could get any keyboard input to be accepted. This took hours on the phone with CISCO TAC, but now that I know this trick, I don't freak when I can't initially talk to a router, Ijust have to spend hours getting the right combo on hyperterm.

Good luck

Geo

I'm not sure if this still applies, or if you have already got the answer, but here goes

1. power off
2. wait 10 secs
3. power on
4. press CTRL-BRK within 10 secs
5. prompt s/b >
6. o/r (RETURN)
7. i (RETURN)
8. choices - configure from scratch
This allows you to create your own config
OR
type "no" (RETURN)
9. prompt s/b hostname (boot) >
10. type "enable" (RETURN)
11. get "hostname #"
12. type "show config"

last time I tried this was a year ago, and it showed all passwords
