im having a strange problem with my 837 series router.
im connecting it to the console cable and using hyperterminal normally,
but when i power it on it displays grabage value.. no LED activity can be seen on it except for the power LED.
hav been waiting on this prompt for 20 minutes now and have no clue how to go about it..
even the ROM mon mode is not showing up ..
attached is a screen shot.
any help would be highly appreciated.. thanks..
If you are getting garbage, it sounds like the baud rate is wrong. Try different baud rates in Hyperterminal. Bear in mind that with some versions of Hyperterminal you must disconnect and re-connect the call (or even perhaps save settings, quit HT, and re-enter) before the new baud rate takes effect.
