How can I go about reseting my lab 2901 ISR back to factory out of the box?

Correct Answer by Leo Laohoo about 7 years 2 months ago

Pop the CF out and let the router boot into ROMmon.  Change the config-registry to 0x2142.  Insert the CF and boot.  When the prompt goes back in, change the password AND the config registry to 0x2102.
