While the solution suggested by Phil will certainly let you login to the console without prompting for username and password, it will also do this for access to the router by telnet or SSH. If you are going to have no authentication then I question why to enable AAA at all.
I would suggest a different solution. Assuming that you want to use AAA to authenticate users by ID and password for telnet or SSH then you can set up a different authentication method for the console. Depending on what you want to do you could authenticate by the line password (which is what many people do) or you could not authenticate at all (which is the result of the suggestion made by Phil). The configuration might look something like this:
I am surprised that adding these lines did not allow you to login directly to the console without prompt for name and password. I wonder if there is some mismatch in the name used in the aaa command and in the console command. Would you be able to post the show running-config from the router so that we can see if there is anything else affecting this?
