I have a 2509 router with ocatal cable configured as terminal server, when i connect the cables 1,2 and 3 they work just fine. But the rest (4,...8) not. The strange thing is when the IOS is loading up the rest (4,...8) of cable they all work fine but when the IOS is finished loading it just hangs there nothing happens. I've tryed another cable but i got the same result.

After this it just hangs there, when i connect the router directly to my PC it works without any problems.

I assume that the AS device in your post is the terminal server built on 2509 router, and the "sw4" is some attached device you can access via the terminal server.
The console framing error message as displayed in your post generally refers to a fact that an unintelligible character was received on a console of your "sw4" device. That is serious as it suggests that your async line is emitting symbols that the "sw4" device has troubles understanding. Usually, these framing errors are the result of mismatched bit speeds, data bits, parity, stop bits or flow control, or by faulty hardware or cabling. Also, elmag noise in the vicinity can result in similar problems.
As you are indicating that the ports 1-3 work fine and the 4-8 do not, I am afraid there are hardware problems with their serial controllers and not much can be done. You could try explicitly setting the speed, data bits, parity and flow control just to be sure about their settings:
line 1 8
Also you could eventually try to upgrade your IOS if that's possible - your IOS on the 2509 is so old that I am even wondering whether you have booted into a full IOS or to the BootROM by any accident (the BootROM on 2500 series contains a limited IOS somewhere around the 11.3 version, similar to yours). What does the show version say about the boot image location?
Still, all these suggestions are only guesses on my part - they may not be successful. Still, I believe they are at least worth trying.
Hi Peter thanks for applying to my post, the Console framing error i got was when i where hitting the enter key. So why does it work when a switch or a router is booting and not when it's finished booting. And yes it’s booting into the full IOS version. I set speed, data bits, parity and flow control but no luck.
