No Response from 2600 Console Port

I have a 2600 that will not respond via the console port at all

I'm using Win2K / Hyperyterm

9600, 8, N, 1

tried both com ports

tried 2 different systems

tried new cable and connector

Anyone have any other ideas?

Depending on your console line configuration the speed may be set to other than 9600. If you have the configuration look at the "line con 0", if not just try the different speed options up to 115200.

Hope this helps,

Is it an ISDN router? Console ports have a tendancy to not work after someone has plugged an ISDN line into them by mistake (yum smell that ozone). Sorry to state the obvious but it used to happen a lot when I worked at a Telco.

The other possibility, if its an up and in service router, is that its run out of memory. A neat trick with that is to unplug an interface cable for a split second. That frees up buffer memory (when the interface goes down) and gives you a few seconds before it gets used up again to log in.

I hope its just the speed setting though ;)

Hello,

your line con 0 does not have the 'no exec' command configured by any chance ? If so, remove that line, that might help.

We have lost 3 2600s with dead console ports. It was a hardware problem for us. They are all trash now. Maybe its time for a recall??

I have the same exact problem I can't figure this up

I had the same problem once. I finally learned that it was a baud rate problem. The router was configured with a buad rate that my computer did not support . I assume that this was for security. I had to use the console reset jumper on the motherboard to reset the routers console port to 9600. Here is a link that explains how to do this. Hope it works. http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/701/59.html
