1801 password recovery

I am trying to do a simple password recovery on a 1801 Fixed ISR. Cisco documentation points me to the common method of hitting the "BREAK" key on startup. This does not seem to work on three different routers. I have tried two PC's as well and still no luck. I have also tried three different terminal emulators and gone through the Cisco document on what to do if the "Break Sequence" doesn't work.

Does anyone have any idea? I cannot open a TAC because I do not have my service contract yet. Please help.

Re: 1801 password recovery

Hi,

Just wondering, could the command 'no service password-recovery' is configured in the router. If it is then that would disable access to ROMMON mode. RMA is your only option in that case. You can verify this when the router starts booting up it will say something like 'password recovery functionality is disabled'. 'I hope that's not the case with you.

HTH,

Sundar
