Hi All,

I have one Cisco 1721 which was working fine w/o any problem. But some days back due to unable to recall password being set into it, I just booted the Router with pressing Ctrl + Break key to go to rommon prompt, but it gets hanged.

Then I started the Router again, it never come up and even tried again with Ctrl + Break key, nothing comes into the console screen.

Appreciate if someone help me to make this Router bootable?

Hi Suresh ,

Connect console cable to router and Try out with verious baud rates starting from min.value ...

At one point u should be able to access the router.

configuration register value may not be 0x2102 when you attempted to enter into rommon mode.
