The DEFAULT console port settings for your router are 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity generated or checked, and 2 stop bits.
Cisco originally shipped this unit with special RJ45 rollover cable and RJ45 to DB9 adapter for the console connection. Provided you use this type of cabling you should be OK with the USB to serial converter. I am also confident that the absolute telnet software is OK for the configuration. The console speed of this router could be changed however by setting the bits within so called configuration register. So if your box is not at the factory default will you please try gradually to change the speed (at your absolute telnet terminal emulation software) to 4800, 2400 and 1200 bps and see if there is any progress.
Well done. Do not worry about the number of stop bits as this unit works OK for both settings. To set up the config register for the factory default you should put it as 0x2102 (you can see the current settings at the end of the "sh ver" output). Cisco 2514 box is quite good for the initial lab as it contains 2 Ethernet ports in addition to 2 synchronous serial lines (the only point is that you would need AUI transceiver to connect the Ethernet port to a LAN or endpoint). You can also use AUX port e.g. for the async modem connection to create stanby dial-up line (as used in the old days of slow comms lines).

present in a non-backbone area. The V-bit is signaled in Type-1 LSA only
