I got some 3 Com switches 3Com 3C16985B and 3C16980A. I don't have its console cable.

How can I check the IOS version installed in it and upgrade its firmware?

How can I reset the switch to factory default so that it just acts as an ordinary L2 switch?

I know this switch is outdated but where can I find its latest firmware (may be during ealry 2001 or 2002 release)?

Dude, you're posting in the wrong forum.  Your product is a 3Com (now called HP) and this forum is for Cisco, Tandberg, Linksys, Ironport, etc. product.
