changed confreg 0x2132 by mistake

Hello, i was trying to recover a password on the 1760 router and entered confreg 0x2132 by mistake. Now the router won't boot up at all. Is it toasted?

Re: changed confreg 0x2132 by mistake

I'm pretty sure it's not toasted.

I think the 2132 sets the console to a baud rate other than 9600. This first document link (below) suggests trying different baud rates until you get the router to respond. E.g. 19200, 38400, 57600, 152000, 4800, 2400, etc. So that's what I'd do. Once you get in, set the config reg back to 2142 or 2102 (depending on whether you want to ignore your NVRAM or not), save your config, reload, and reset your baud rate back to 9600.
