Jan 12th, 2010

Ok...I'm trying to setup my 851W  router.  Unable to gain access from the LAN port on   I'm able to access through the console port, but the default username/passcode  (cisco/cisco) does not work.  I've tried the reset button, but still no luck.  This was a brand new unit with full documentation, but no luck in gaining access....Any ideas???

Any other suggestions....Cisco/Cisco doesn't work....I keep getting the same response % Authentication failed.  Is there a procedure on a power reset to place it back on default?
