Recently during an IOS upgrade there was a power failure which resulted in the loss of the IOS and booting to Rommon. There was a bit of playing with registers and eventually the image was replaced using Xmodem and rebooted. Since then the router boots up correctly but no interfaces are available. They are missing from the Sho Ver / Sho run.
Please advise as to course of action to recover router.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
I would like to see the sh version output as well as the sh diag, it could be a problem with the MoBo (probably it got faulty during the outage and then no interfaces are recognized anymore), all the interfaces are down/down or a problem with the IOS you installed, please post this information in order to further assist you
Many Thanks for you assistance
Please see the4 sh Ver info
the Sho diag gave no results

This is really peculiar. Never seen it before in the way you describe it. I suppose this happens only rarely.
I would start with issueing the command: write erase, and then reload the router.
This will perhaps remove any corrupted data from nvram and let you re-enter the config.
If this does not help, could you please post the full output of the boot cycle?
Your configuration register is set to the wrong value. This may verw well be the cause of your problems. To correct this, type the following on the console:
Then reload the router and check what happens.
Please find the Link on regisert setting and its meaning. I hope it will give some clarity.
I will look into the Reg info
just some new info the Sho tech-Support gives no result for controlers, diags, and interfaces, the router has both a fast ethernet and 2 x wic-1t installed.
Can you try out the following steps.
Step 1 first change the configuration register value to 0x2102 using config-register 0x2102
Step 2 Hit Ctrl-Z to type end to quit from the editor.
Step 3 Type config terminal at the prompt.
Step 4 Type line con0
Step 5 at the Line con0 : please type the follwoing
Step 6 speed 9600
Step 7 Hit Ctrl-Z to type end to quit from the editor.
Step 8 then you must type write mem
Step 9 type reload
Please let me know the update.
This is an intentional design of the 2600/3600. If the router let you set the configuration register to 0x2102, it would have changed the console speed from 115200 to 9600. At that point, you could be locked out of the router (if you did this in ROMMON, and were configured to boot to ROMMON, or had no IOS image in flash).
Therefore IOS masks the console speed bits from the conf-reg command to prevent the user from inadvertent console speed changes. Instead, you need to use the "speed 9600" command to change the console speed.
Are you seeing any messages when you are changing the console speed or trace back ?
Can you follow the procedure mentioned below.
Open the hyper terminal.
router(config)#line con 0
At this point the screen will go blank.
Close your hyperterminal session and re-establish at 9600bps
(Check your configs are in running memory)
router#copy run start
(to save the config change)
(Checks config setting - it may say one of two things
"Configuration register is 0x2102" or,
"Configuration register is 0x3922 - will be 0x2102 at next reload"
please let me know the result.
Important thing is ***after changing the console rate and configuration register value*** you need to save the config using """WR MEM"" and boot the router.
