Hello all, I'm a newbie with a Cisco router that I got from my job and i'll like to reset it and log in to the console and start messing around with it.
I have the cables to connect to the console and i have my laptop, now all i need to know is what to do next, Do i have to download a software to be able to administer the router or do i need to open a command line????
You'll need to check what COM port was assigned to the USB adapter (device manager in Windows). Once you know the COM port number, that will be the one you enter in hyper terminal. I've attached a couple of screen shots for you.
