Mar 4th, 2011

Hi,

I need some help with the password reset of a Cisco 1700 Router, when I do a :

rommon 1 > confreg 0x2102

rommon 2 >

I do not receive the message / prompt to reboot, and once I type reset the router just boots as per normal, please help.

Regards

I have this problem too.

You have to do this:

- change register to 2142 (not 2102)

- reset

- allow normal boot, enter in EXEC mode and change your password (Attention! If you were using "secret" passwords, you can only change it and thus save the new config. So you will lose your real config. If you have a backup - no problem).

- change register to 2102 by "config-register 0x2102" in EXEC mode.

- Reload the router

- Use new credentials and configure your router as it should be.
