Emergency Recovery?

Varez ITVarez IT Member Posts: 32 ■■□□□□□□□□
During a lab today I accidentally changed the configuration register on a Cisco 2500 seriers router to 0x1000 (I meant to change it to 0x2100). Now, the router will not boot at all. It turns on but I can't even interrupt the boot sequence with ctrl+break and there is no output upon boot.

Is there anything that can be done at this point to restore the router?

Thank you!

    Please disregard my prior post.

    I performed some troubleshooting using the Cisco website and I was able to fix this issue. I was not getting any output from the console port due to a mismatch in the baud rate of my terminal software. Once I set the baud rate to 1200 I got clear output from the console port and changed the configuration register value back to the default of 0x2102.

    It was a great learning experience.

    Thank you all again! This forum is very helpful.
