Hi, I am new to CISCO appliances and while configuring my ASA 5505 I changed the IP address range of the internal network. Obviously I made an error because I cannot reach the box neither at the old nor the new address. How can I restore the interface and firewall definitions or reset the box to its initial state ? I found a doc how to reset the password, but not explaining how to restore the complete initial config.
Thank you for a hint, I hope there is a doc describing this process or a hint which command I should use.

Try the following
hostname(config)# configure factory-default [ip_address [mask]]
If you specify the ip_address, then you set the inside or management interface IP address, depending on
your model, instead of using the default IP address of 126.96.36.199. The http command uses the subnet
you specify. Similarly, the dhcpd address command range consists of addresses within the subnet that
After you restore the factory default configuration, save it to internal Flash memory using the write
memory command. The write memory command saves the running configuration to the default location
for the startup configuration, even if you previously configured the boot config command to set a
different location; when the configuration was cleared, this path was also cleared.
