I have tried all speeds from 1200 to 115200 to accees the port. I can see activity on the router on FA 0/0, EiGRP broadcasts, the ip address of the interface, even the version of IOS but I don't have the password or a printed config. I need access to console port and am willing to wipe the entire config etc and start from scratch. Any suggestions? I have also noted a jumper inside labeled reset but not been able to find any Cisco docs on what this jumper is for?
First ensure that your cable/terminal emulator works on another Cisco device
Second, if possible, connect to the console and reboot the device, you should see something if the console is working.
If you can, interupt the boot and check the config register, this can change/set the baud rate.
Last you don't need to wipe the configuration, you can perform password recovery, again by setting the config register.
