Many thanks for your response. Unfortunately the the command was rejected.

Here is the outcome

>o/r 0x2102



Your further assistance shall be appreciated.

Have you tried typing 'i'


What do you get?

You have to be careful, any space, though not shown will produce an incorrect command. Make sure you've typed

>o/r 0x2102 without hitting a back space and trying to delete something.

Thank you again sir, It's becoming very strange though, after typing the last command o/r 0x2102 the system came up with "what?" and ever since it does not even accept any further command.

No key pressed is further displayed. My terminal setting is 9600,8,N 1

Hope i can still be helped further?.

If you are unable to type anything, I don't know what else to tell you.

Try rebooting the router and see if you can perform a ctrl+break sequence.

Hello, thanks you so much for your time. After rebooting the system, it now accept the commands o/r 0x2102 followed by letter "i" and now brought me to the following prompt
