Re: password recovery for 2600 series router

No..you will not loose the exhisting configuration if you do a password recovery. Password recovery will make the router to boot without any password and with default config. The exhisting config will be stored in NVRAM which you can restore it (without enable password/secret) after router boots up.

See the step 10 and 11. So go ahead and follow the procedure exactly as its stated.
