I am having trouble connecting to the console of several of my switches.
I have troubleshooted as best as I can. The console cable I am using does work using the same cable, laptop and configuration on the laptop on two other switches.
I have tried setting the baud rate, speed, stopbits, flowcontrol, etc as it suggests in all manuals but still no luck.
On one of the switches when I connect to the console a series of 'y's and '$' appear on the other nothing appears. If I then come back to another switch it works no problem.
Any ideas what can cause this?
