password recovery on Cisco 851

Hi!

I'm new in a company, previous technician forgot secret on Cisco 851, so i've tried to recover it today. I've connected to serial with PuTTy, turned of router for 10 seconds, turned on, then i pressed break for 20-30 seconds. I couldn't get to ROMMON. I've tried Windows Hyppertrminal, i've tried Ctrl+break - nothing. Cisco didn't receive my break command. Why was that?

Thanks

Hi Sergev,

You are currently posting in the Small Business section.  The router you have would be considered and Enterprise device.

Please post your question in this section:
