I've got three routers I need to reset and configure - a 1601, 2621 and a 3640. I'm using a Cisco console cable (RJ45-DB9), and one other cable that I made myself and verfied as working on a Catalyst 4006.
When I plug into any of the routers I get the full boot output as usual - however, I cannot send any data to the routers. No breaks, no input, nothing.
My HyperTerminal, PuTTY and minicom settings are 9600 8N1 with hardware flow control. Am I doing something wrong or are the cables to blame?
