What is the default password for cisco


There are two main methods to return a Cisco router to its original factory defaults. These two methods are described below.
Method 1
1. uses the config-register 0x2102 command in global configuration mode.
2. Check the configuration register on the router by issuing the show version command.
3. The configuration register setting is displayed in the last line of the show version command output and should be set to 0x2102. If this is not the case, enter the config-register 0x2102 command once in global configuration mode.
router#configure terminal
router(config)#config-register 0x2102
router(config)#end
router#
4. If the show version command is issued again, the same line in the command output will have '(will be 0x2102 at next reload)' appended to the current register setting.
5. Erase the current start-up configuration on the router with the write erase command.
Reload the router with the reload command. When prompted to save the configuration, DO NOT save.
router#reload
System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: n
Proceed with reload? [confirm]
Once the router reloads, the System Configuration Dialog appears.
--- System Configuration Dialog ---
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:
The router is now reset to the original factory defaults.
Method 2
1. uses the config-register 0x2142 command in global configuration mode.
2. Enter the config-register 0x2142 command in global configuration mode.
router(config)#config-register 0x2142
This causes the router to ignore the start-up configuration on the next reload. If a show version is issued, the last line in the command output will have '(will be 0x2142 at next reload)' appended to the current configuration register setting.
3. Reload the router using the reload command in enable mode. It is not necessary to save when prompted to save the system configuration.
router#reload
System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: n
Proceed with reload? [confirm]
After the router has reloaded, the System Configuration Dialog appears.
4. Enter no to the question "Would you like to enter initial configuration dialog?"
5. Change the configuration register setting to 0x2102 by entering the config-register 0x2102 command once in global configuration mode.
6. Issue the write memory command in enable mode to overwrite the existing start-up configuration with the current running configuration.
7. Reload the router with the reload command in enable mode.
Once the router reloads, the System configuration Dialog appears.
--- System Configuration Dialog ---
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:
The router is now reset to the original factory defaults.
Note: The configurations below are stored in ROMMON, and cannot be reset to Factory Default Settings by the write erase or config-register 0x2142 commands.

error 3 when i open my magicjack


On your softphone:

1. Click "Menu" on the top right-hand corner
2. Click "Advanced Users"
3. Click "Restart"

If your magicJack PLUS is plugged into your modem or router, unplug it from the power source, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in.

If that does not work:
Open port 49152-65535 UDP on ALL firewalls and your router, if you have one. (Router ports can be opened via the web application applicable to your router).

Restart magicJack again by following the steps above.

How to access Web Application for router

1. Start > Run > Type in cmd > Press ENTER
2. A command prompt will open
3. Type ipconfig > press ENTER
4. Make note / write down name of the default gateway and IP
address
5. Open your Internet Browser
6. Type in the default gateway IP (Example: 192.168.1.1)
7. Type in Username and Password
8. Find "Port Forwarding" and Forward Port 49152-655535 UDP
for the IP address you located earlier.

Hi i have 1841 router what is the default user name password for this i tryed with user name passowrd as cisco but is saying that no user cisco pls help me



  • Follow these steps in order to recover your password:
    1. Attach a terminal or PC with terminal emulation to the console port of the router.
      Use these terminal settings:
      • 9600 baud rate
      • No parity
      • 8 data bits
      • 1 stop bit
      • No flow control
    2. If you can access the router, type show version at the prompt, and record the configuration register setting.
      Note: The configuration register is usually set to 0x2102 or 0x102. If you can no longer access the router (because of a lost login or TACACS password), you can safely assume that your configuration register is set to 0x2102.
    3. Use the power switch in order to turn off the router, and then turn the router back on.
      Important Notes:
      • In order to simulate this step on a Cisco 6400, pull out and then plug in the Node Route Processor (NRP) or Node Switch Processor (NSP) card.
      • In order to simulate this step on a Cisco 6x00 with NI-2, pull out and then plug in the NI-2 card.
    4. Press Break on the terminal keyboard within 60 seconds of power up in order to put the router into ROMMON.
      If the break sequence does not work, refer to Standard Break Key Sequence Combinations During Password Recovery for other key combinations.
    5. Type confreg 0x2142 at the rommon 1> prompt in order to boot from Flash.
      This step bypasses the startup configuration where the passwords are stored.
    6. Type reset at the rommon 2> prompt.
      The router reboots, but ignores the saved configuration.
    7. Type no after each setup question, or press Ctrl-C in order to skip the initial setup procedure.
    8. Type enable at the Router> prompt.
      You are in enable mode and should see the Router# prompt.
    9. Type configure memory or copy startup-config running-config in order to copy the nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) into memory.
      Important: Do not type copy running-config startup-config or write. These commands erase your startup configuration.
    10. Type show running-config.
      The show running-config command shows the configuration of the router. In this configuration, the shutdown command appears under all interfaces, which indicates all interfaces are currently shut down. In addition, the passwords (enable password, enable secret, vty, console passwords) are in either an encrypted or unencrypted format. You can reuse unencrypted passwords. You must change encrypted passwords to a new password.
    11. Type configure terminal.
      The hostname(config)# prompt appears.
    12. Type enable secret password> in order to change the enable secret password. For example:
      hostname(config)#enable secret cisco
    13. Issue the no shutdown command on every interface that you use.
      If you issue a show ip interface brief command in privilege EXEC mode, every interface that you want to use should display up up. For example:
      Router#show ip interface brief
    14. Type config-register configuration_register_setting>. Where configuration_register_setting is either the value you recorded in step 2 or0x2102 . For example:
      hostname(config)#config-register 0x2102
    15. Press Ctrl-z or end in order to leave the configuration mode.
      The hostname# prompt appears.
    16. Type write memory or copy running-config startup-config in order to commit the changes.

access any command line


That is the expected behavior of the switch.  If you want to go into privilege mode, you need to type "enable" at that prompt and enter the correct password.
