Pix 506e (lost connectivity, can not reach either in/out port)
We have a 506e, that has been up and running for about 2 years with no issues. This morning a janitor accidently pulled the either cable going from the Outgoing Port to the Router out of the PIX, then instead of pluging it back into the same port, they plugged it into the console port.
Since that happened I am unable to ping both the inside and outside ports.
I have powered down the Pix, replaced the either cable to the correct port, recycled the Pix.
From the inside I am not able to ping the Pix (Was configured as IP Address 192.168.1.1). From an ouside IP Address I am not able to ping the outside address that we gave the PIX.
Could this have somehow resetted the PIX to factory defaults. (If so what is the factory default for a 506e)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Currently both ports LEDs are displaying activity and connectivity.

Ron, the only way to find out what is happening with the pix is to console to it, there is no other way to see by guessing what the issue is, there could be many probabilities, perhaps the configuration on PIX was never saved, or the Janitor not only pulled the cable but dropped the pix on the floor, or perhaps pix does not load code and got stock in Rommon etc.. PIX will not go into factory default settings unless you tell it to do so by command instructions.. so it must be something else.
so please conect to pix console and login.
Here are some commands you may try.
show ip will show interface IPaddresses
show interface whether interface is Up/Up or Up/down etc..
