  • Cisco 1700 router - can't get into ROMMON

    Okay... I've reset many cisco routers, ones I aquire when swapping out new for end of life or routers left behind by former retail tennants when I rewire for a new tennant.

    But this 1720 won't respond to the standard CTRL > Break key sequence. The IOS loads and I get "User Access Verification" along with "password:"

    As Follows:

    Hag con0 is now available


    Press RETURN to get started.

    I Press RETURN and I get:

    User Access Verification
    Password:

    I just reset another 1720 without issue. Anyone know why I can't get into this one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just thought I'd update my post on this problem. It's resolved and want to pass the resolution along for others.

    I was using a USB to Serial adapter, since my Thinkpad doesn't have a serial port. I reset my 1750 cisco and catalist 2950 using this set up but apparently the "break" command wasn't being sent via hyperterminal this time.

    I connected the console cable to my IBM server, which has two com ports, and I got the ROMMON> Prompt.

    Hope this helps anyone else tying to reset a cisco router.

      You can use Teraterm which has a "Send break" function build-in.

        Thanks for the info. I just downloaded teraterm and will try it using my USB to Serial connection for counseling into my router.
