Re: 2520 console

Hyperterminal should work OK. You (usually) want it set for 9600, 8 data bits, no parity, one stop bit (9600, 8, N, 1 ) and you want NO FLOW CONTROL (no software, no hardware ... none ... unclick everything).

I say "usually" because some routers bought used may have been reloaded through the serial port, and the person that reloaded it may forget to reset the terminal parameters.

If "9600,8,n,1" doesn't work, try 115K and work down from there.

Good Luck

This question was also posted on the WAN Routing and Switching forum where it has gotten several responses. I suggest that we consolidate the discussion in that forum.
