The cable is ok, i downloaded the program, and it still doesn't work, nothing shows up at all, i have tried every setting possible!! Do you think it is a problem with the console port of the router?

might be.. if all the options are not working then it may be the problem with console port.

try using this same setup in any other cisco device ( if possible).

If you have two routers and it does not work on either one then it does sound suspicious that the cable or connectors may be faulty.

It may also be that the console port on the 2520 has been set to a different speed. The 2520 console supports 4 speeds: 1200, 2400, 4800, and 9600 (with 9600 being the default). It might help to configure Hyperterm to each of the speeds, stop Hyperterm, start Hyperterm again (many versions of Hyperterm do not recognize the change in speed till it stops and starts again) and see if you get anything.

Another thing to be aware of is whether you see output messages while the router is booting. If you see readable messages then you know that you have the correct speed. If the console still does not work then there is some other issue.
