I have recently got hold of an 803 Router for my CCNA, which I am connecting to my laptop with the Cisco Console cable, and a USB to RS232 adaptor.
When I open up Hyperterminal I can see the Router booting, but it seems to get stuck towards the end, and then if I press return it takes me to a prompt, of sorts, always along the lines of MASPDE. It seems to recognise some key strokes, but not all (but doesn't show them on the screen), and when I hit return it usually throws up an error message because it didn't recognise the keys pressed.
I have attached the text that the Router outputs when I turn it on in case it helps. I have also confirmed in Device manager that COM 1 is using the correct settings (e.g. 9600 bits/sec etc.)
As you can probably tell I'm a bit of a newbie, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
