2502 seems to lock up?

Hi,

I just got 2 - 2502 routers off of eBay and after starting them up it seems to load up normally until it locks up. I can't figure out what's going on and it won't let me CTRL+BREAK or anything that would allow me to reconfigure the router. Can anyone help me with this, or atleast point me in the right direction? I've pasted a copy of what I get from the router.


Also, where can I find an updated IOS since I obviously did not buy my routers from cisco?

Hello,


what are your configuration register settings ? Make sure it is 0x2102. To change it, hit Ctrl+Break within 10 seconds after booting the router, this will get you into ROMMOM mode. Change the configuration register to 0x2102 and reload the router.


HTH,
