I have a 2611 router that will boot, but when it get's to..Press Return to get started! It just hangs..?? I have an alarm light on the router and the router was once an Internet ISP router. What do I need to do to access the router.


Thanks,

It looks that you have some configuration on the router which is causing the router to lock as soon as it loads the configuration.


The best you can do is to boot the router so that it ignores the configuration. To do that press 'Ctrl+Break' while the router is booting up to go into ROMMON. Once you are there type the command 'confreg 0x2142' & then use the 'boot' command to boot it up.


Hope that helps!!
