Console port, can;t change the speed... 7204

I'm trying to copy a new IOS from a laptop to the router via console port using hyperterminal.

I'm trying to change the console port speed and the 7204 does not like it.

This is what i am getting...

WWWRouter(config)#

WWWRouter(config)#line con 0

WWWRouter(config-line)#speed 115200

Failed to change line 0's speed

WWWRouter(config-line)#

Can you guys tell me why i can;t change the speed?

Thank you,

Zeek

Re: Console port, can;t change the speed... 7204

The speed of the console is controlled by the configuration register. The highest speed for the 7200 is 9600 bps. My config register decoding tool can be found at http://www.marcuscom.com/confregdecode.html . It's a bit dated, but 7200 support is included.

That said, unless you're stuck in rommon mode, it will be a lot quicker to copy the image to the device using one of TFTP, FTP, RCP, or SCP. There are plenty of Open Source servers for each of those protocols.
