I have a Cisco 806 with the CBAC firewall package on it. This morning when I went to use my pc I noticed i had no conneciton, I went to check the router and I dont know why it was in rommon mode. I reset the router and it came up fine and I had connection again. This strikes me as weird it had never happened before. I thought maybe a power outage might have caused it but usually when that happens the router just reboots and goes into regular mode. My coworker thinks I might have been hacked. The router is connected to a pc with server software which is always on, and a desktop which i turn off when im not home. Another weird thing is the server was at the logon prompt and asking my why the pc had been turned off unexpectedly. This usualy will show when a power outage occurs....if someone had rebooted it (eg. hacked in ) it shouldnt have asked that cos it would have been an expected shutdown.
My question is, any ideas on why the router would have gone into rommon mode like that? there's no one at home so there's no way someone could have physically done somehting in the equipment.
I think your are having the power outage in your house. From my experience, when you boot up pc and the router together with the console cable connected; sometime the router will go to the Rommon mode. Router sometime will detect the signal coming from PC similar to Ctl-Break.
