How to connect to console on router?

By Shs_Bulldog ·
I have a RND and 3com router. I put the serial cable into the router and then into my laptop. I setup a new hyperterminal connection. Well then when it asked for spee and flow control, I left it as default. The it says it connected, but when youhit enter, nothing happens? I have done this many times on Cisco routers, and used the default settings. Is there somehting I should change in the default settings? Thanks

Double check the Baud rate. The info should be in the Router's documentation.

Check the cable. you probably need a a cross over cable (use a NULL modem). The cisco cables that ship with the cisco routers are already crossed.

The CISCO cable that is shipped with a CISCO router is a rollover cable, for use on the console port. This is not to be confused with a crossover cable. Try setting the connection to be 8N1 and at a BRate = 9600. Additionally make sure that the terminal options for that connection are set to echo what is typed. Additionally make sure tha the connection setting is set to VT100 (Ansi). By doing this you sould be able to see what is going on. I am assuming this is a new router? Or does it have an IP address already? If it does, and it is on the network, try telnet to the ip address and log in that way. Else, make sure the cable is the right one/type the 3Com should have some with one. Hope this helps.
