During initial setup of 1841 router, after I logged in as initial user(cisco), there were power brake down, so my pc and router restarts. Problem is I didn't manage to create new user, so now I cannot login to route. Is there any way to create user now, so that i can configure router?

Thank you

As far as I know in your situation you need to perform password recovery to get into the router. After password recovery is done and you are in the router in enable mode you could load the startup config if you wish, or you can just start configuring the router from scratch.

I recently ran into a very similar situation where we had not created a new user iD and password, and the password recovery worked very well for us.
