Router password Recovery

I was trying to password recovery on 2611 router. I think I input wrong config reg on the ROMMON mode. After reboot, I can't go into ROMMON mode again and I can see only strange letters like below.

What can I do for it?

Re: Router password Recovery

This is an almost classic symptom of having changed the speed of the console port. Some of the bits in the config register do control the speed of the console port.

If we knew what value you had put into the config register then we could figure what the speed of the console port is set to. But since we do not know this you will just have to experiment some and find the right one. I suggest that you change the speed of the connection in your terminal emulator (Hyperterm or which ever one you are using) to 1200 (the lowest speed). If you are using Hyperterm (and perhaps some others) you should stop and re-start the connection each time you change the speed. Then attempt to access the router. If it works then you know the speed and can now access the router and set the config register to its normal value (at which time you will need to change the speed of your terminal emulator.) If it does not work at 1200 change the terminal emulator speed to 2400. Keep working through the speeds till you find one that works.

Thank you so much. I made it with 19200 baud rate.
