IOS Problem

Alhaji265Alhaji265 Posts: 201Member ■■■□□□□□□□
Cisco router 2610 is unable to boot into Rommon mode. After doing research, I found steps to use Break Key Sequence Combination (link on bottom of page) to get into the device using TeraTerm, but no success.

What are the steps do I need to take in order to get this back up running in good shape? Thank you in advance.

    What are you getting in your terminal? Anything?

    Check your rates, they could be incorrect.

    What he said. I had the same problem (Gibberish) with a couple of switches before realizing they were set to 115200 BAUD (this is the highest BAUD/bitrate and is frequently used when loading an IOS image via XModem). I had set one of them to 115200 before loading an IOS (came with no IOS) and forgot to set it back. The other came that way [from eBay].

    Yep, reason why I asked if you were getting anything was to then suggest to check the port settings :)

    Basically, you'll have to match the terminal baud rate to what it may be set to on the router.
