I can see the console on the router. (Using the USB console connected to a Macintosh.) I was configuring the router though this console connection, and I created a new user (priv level 15) and removed the default 'cisco' user. So I'm stuck at the username/password login prompt now.
I decided to do the password recovery procedure (via the cisco doc I found etc), but I cannot break into ROMMON during the boot process. I'm not sure if that's because my Mac isn't sending the break, or what.
The pw recovery doc says you can "remove flash" if you can't break into the boot sequence. However, I cannot find any instructions on how to remove the flash. I've opened the router, and I see one very small daughter card on the main board that I think is the flash, but I'm not about to start arbitrarly prying parts off.
...just that one, rather small, daughter card -- centered about 1/3 way from the side of the main board:
I note that the main board says "M1F" next to the outline around this daughter card -- reminds me of a 'Main 1 Flash" sort of Cisco naming convention. But again, I don't want to try prying this off hoping it's the flash memory that will drop me into ROMMON on the next boot.
I wish I could find some Cisco doc that explained how to do the PW reset when you can't break into the boot process...
Ok. Thanks for the pictures. Nope these are not the ones. I reviewed the Data Sheet of the 1921 and it's telling me that the 256mb Flash is internal. Which leads me to believe the Flash is built-in to the mother board. You'll have to find another Windows-based client and download the USB console driver from Cisco and try it this way.
