Hello, Iam doing self study for CCNA. I hav bought 2621 router, 1721 router, One 2900XL switch from ebay.

The issue : For the first time I have reset the password of 2900XL (24 port)switch by step by step procedure.But i have not saved the configuration. I switched it off.

When i try to connect to switch after two days i cant see anything on the heperterminal window. I tried to recover the password again. But it si not going to switch mode. the heperterminal window is blank.

Can any one help me to resolve this problem. Any help will be appreciated .

Thanks .

Unsaving the configuration doesn't harm your switch in that manner, kindly check the physical connectivity of the console port, and make sure of the hyperterminal configuration:

9600 baud rate

No parity

8 data bits

1 stop bit

No flow control

HTH, please rate if it does help,
