Thanks, How can I check the console port of this router ? Its brand new though and on Baud rate 0f 9600 I can get into the other new router.

The only option left with you is to try each and every baud rae setting available on the hyperterminal.

One of the baud rates would work. Then you can change the configuration register to default.

Thanks much Shushil, it worked.

Do you have a lost password recovery solution ?
