Selling my Router

Answered Question
Aug 5th, 2008

I want to sell my router. How can I tell exactly what is in it.

I believe its either a 7200, 7204 or 7206? How can I tell.

I know I have an NPE400 card but how can I tell how much memory is on the card?

TIA

I have this problem too.

Show version will give you Memory specs and model information also, you can use show diag in order to verify the part numbers of the modules attached to this unit.

For the c7200 command "show c7200" might be helpful as well

So there is no way to find out without turning it on? I don't even remember the username and password for the router. Its been off for about 2.5 years.

The NPE may have 128 or 256 depending on when it was purchased:

Try checkin physically the NPE-400 SDRAM module in order to determine if it is 128 or 256.

Make sure to observe security guidelines:

Well I have been unable to get the NPE 400 card out. I don't want to break it.

As I recall, I use to use HyperTerminal to get in. I have hooked up the console cable which is 8pin on one side and the other side of the 8 pin phone connector goes into a DB9 pin serial. I go into Hyperterminal on both a Windows XP machine and a Windows 2000 using Com1 and I don't seem to be getting a response.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

If com1 is not working then use the other ones also, in Hyperterminal make sure you are using the following settings:

Bits/s: 9600

Data bits: 8

Parity: None

Stop bits:1

Ok, I found my password and I think I know what the password may be.

How can I go in and change the password to whatever the "default" password normally is when Cisco ships the equipment?

Thanks.

I think that will do it.

"How can I go in and change the password to whatever the "default" password normally is when Cisco ships the equipment?"

command in the terminal should be 'write erase'

If you don't want to turn it on then you could mind-meld with it.

you'd want to erase the configuration from it before selling it anyway. The chassis should have the model name marked on it though.
