All of sudden, my console password is gone.
When the router says..."Cisco2651XM con0 is now available, Press RETURN to get started."
When I hit return it does not prompt me for the console password and yet in my config, the console password is there.
It used to worked. Any ideas? Thanks

I did enable aaa new-model from the SDM. I was playing with the VPN, as this is a home router. However I reloaded the router without a write. In my sh run.. it does showed.. no aaa new-model.
After work today, everything is fine again.
How does aaa new-model affect my con 0 password?
Do you meant to say that if i configured console login name and password and username and password for local login through vty then aaa new-model will force to take username and password configured for vty to gain access ?
Once you enable aaa new-model, the authentication prompt changes from
Username: and Password:
If you haven't configured an username and password,
(username [username] privilege 15 password [password])
guess what ? You get locked out.
