breaking a router's power-up for ROMMON

I have conlosed into a 2600 router and attempting to

to break the power-up sequence of the router to put it into ROMMON. The "break" key does not seem to be working. Does anyone happen to know if there's any other key combination that I may try?

Thanks.

Re: breaking a router's power-up for ROMMON

This is very dependant on the terminal program you are using. you might try the following:

1. b

2. Ctrl-b

If these don't work pls let the forum know the terminal program (hyperterminal/etc) you are using.

Hope this helps,

This link pretty much covers any terminal emulator you might be using.

If trying to use hyperterm I would recommend not bothering. Install another terminal emulator. I have found Tera Term Pro works well and is free.

Sometimes it happen that auxilary port is not active during the book sequence of a router. You need need to do it through a console port with the following settings

9600 baud rate

No parity

8 data bits

1 stop bit

No flow control

You can also try this

Connect to the router with the following terminal settings:

1200 baud rate

No parity

8 data bits

1 stop bit

No flow control

"You no longer see any output on your screen. This is normal.Power cycle (switch off and then on) the router and press the spacebar for 10-15 seconds. This generates a signal similar to the break sequence.Disconnect your terminal and reconnect with a 9600 baud rate. You should now be in ROM Monitor"

If you are using a laptop, try "FN(function)-Ctrl-Break" or "FN-Break".
