I have just purchased some equipment to help me study for the CCNA exam, we my equipment arrived, I started it all up made sure it booted etc and I could connect into it, and running the software as described, which it was.
I then unplugged it, and left it for the night, come to connect into one of my switches today, 2950, and it will not work via hyperterminal using the console cable, I have tried using another cable, to no avail, nor using another computer. However I can access the rest of my hardware.
The switch seems to be working fine, the LEDS indicate its started up fine etc, and if I leave it on and connect from the ethernet port of one of my rotuers, for example an 2620xm, then the LED on the router and switch are both green. Furthermore if I use the command *show cdp neighbors detail* I can see the switch and its information, it is currently running IOS 12.1(9) if that helps.
As the switch has no IP address I am unable to use telent to connect into it, and as it is the wrong version, cannot reset it and use the Express setup.
If anyone can help, before I ring up tomorrow to get the unit replaced, that would be great
