Have a Cisco 1811 that I want to use for a lab but unable to get into it.
When it boots you get nothing on the console (e.g. no boot up indications) after a minute or so it presents:
Press RETURN to get started!
This drops me to the Router> prompt.
If I try to go into enable mode I get % No password is set
Have tried sending a break during boot to get to ROMMON but doesn't work......
Sho version gives me the following:
