Router problem

I have 2621 router.

When I started this router, I get ASCII character

rather than login prompt.

I tried to change the baud rate for console access to fix this problem but would't work.

Can anyone let me know what is wrong with this device

giving me strange characters on startup.

Thanks/Regards

Amir

Re: Router problem

Apparently, looks like bit rate problem. Try connecting at various possible speeds. Are you using the right cable?

Even if you are getting strange character, see if you can still type password (even if it is not asking for password), login to the router and run a command, say reload.

HTH.
