    What DO you see? Are you just unable to interrupt the boot process?



    Why are you trying to get into ROMMON? Have you lost your passwords?

Iam trying to connect my sony kdl hx 700 to wireless network and my ps3 but my router is a cisco 857 can it be done?


There are 2 models of the Cisco 857 router. You must have the the Cisco 857W in order to support 802.11b/g wireless. The 857 without the "W" will not support it.

Reset my Cisco AIR-AP1242AG-N-K9 but still can't access the control panel using a console calbe and laptop. Using Cisco Cisco as user name and password. Note when typing the password nothing appears in...


Hmmm..., I assume you are using Windows..... Try just going to the Network, see if you router shows up if so.... Click on it... It should ask for a pin type in the pin that usually can be found on the bottom of your router... If not reset to factory defaults and in your broswer type in your IP address, do not use autoconfiguration.... On all Linksys routers the default username is admin (with the password left empty) from there you can set your password and configure your router for use.... Hope this helps ;)

How to use hyperterminal


Run HyperTerminal in Windows by going to Start > Programs > Accessories > Communications > HyperTerminal.
After clicking on the HyperTerminal icon, you will see this window:
hyperterminal_1_small.jpg
HyperTerminal prompts you to create a new connection. Note that this is not required but let’s go ahead and do it.

Type in the word cisco for the connection name and click OK.
Connect your Cisco device to your PC’s COM1 port but don’t turn it on yet. On the next window that appears, make sure that the “Connect Using” field says COM1 and click OK.
hyperterminal_2_small.jpg
On the next window, change the Baud rate to 9600 and click OK.
hyperterminal_3_small.jpg
Now, turn on your Cisco device. In the HyperTerminal window, you should see the boot up process for your device, like this:
hyperterminal_4_small.jpg
//'); //]]> document.write(''); CollectiveMedia.createAndAttachAd("ns-74737014_1271195234","http://ad.doubleclick.net/adj/ns.petri/archive;net=ns;u=,ns-74737014_1271195234,11286e7f1d8af7d,ce_mobile_blackberry,;;kw=;tile=2;ord1=504214;sz=300x250,336x280;ppos=BTF;contx=ce_mobile_blackberry;btg=;ord=3760843785557546?","300","250,336",false); archive;ppos=btf;kw=;tile=2;sz=300x250,336x280;ord=123456789??\ You have successfully configured HyperTerminal and connected to your Cisco device.
When you are done and try to close out HyperTerminal, you will be asked if you want to save this connection. I suggest saving it with the name you gave it, cisco, so that you don’t have to configure it again next time.

I would like to configure port fowarding on the Cisco 857 router using the http interface rather than via any coding. Is it possible and what do I need to do? In my scenario, the router must be configured...


It is possible to configure your router via a web browser. Although it’s disabled by default, your router has its own mini HTTP server built in. This provides another way to gain access to the router for the purpose of issuing commands. To enable the HTTP server, you have to use the command "ip http server" from the global configuration mode.

cisco(config)#ip http server
cisco(config)#

Then open a web browser and point it to one of your router’s IP addresses. The interface is not really nice, but you can issue commands using hyperlinks.
For security reasons I still suggest that you keep the HTTP server turned off, since it offers just another point of access for potential hacking.

What is so bad about the command line? Configuring port forwarding is actually pretty easy, once you know the commands.

Type show ip interface to find the name of the interface you want to set port forwarding for.

The show ip nat translations command shows you the current port forwards on Router.

Type configure to enter the configuration mode
The command for port forwarding is: ip nat inside source static (TCPorUDP) (YourComputersIP) (PortToForward) interface (name)(PortToForward)

in you case:
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.0.1 5900 interface (name) 5900
and
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.0.2 5901 interface (name) 5901
replace (name) with the interface name you got from the first command.

Then press CTRL-Z to end the Configure Session
Type copy run start once you tested your settings and press ENTER for the question Destination filename [startup-config]?

I have heard of some commercial tools that let you configure your router via web interface, but they are very expensive (around 1400$).
You can try it out for 14 days. Go here.
If you want to play with a free one, go to Cisco (link) and check it out. (You have to be a member though.)


If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Cisco 857 router


You might need to reset the password. In order to do this, follow these directions:

  1. Console into the router, then power cycle it. As its rebooting hit the "break | pause" button on your keyboard, and you get to the rommon1> prompt.
  2. Then type rommon1>confreg 2142 rommon2>reset
  3. The router comes back on as if it were new---answer no to the first question, and sometimes it asks a second question (do you want to terminate autoinstall, or something...)---answer yes to the secondquestion if it asks. Then hit enter and you get router> in a few seconds.
  4. Then router>en router#copy start run

create a new account:
  1. router#conf t
  2. router(config)#username bob priv 15 password bob
set register back:
  1. router(config)#confreg 0x2102
  2. router(config)#exit
  3. router#wr
  4. router#reboot

and that should let you login with bob/bob

I have cisco router 857 and dont know how to configure


Hi!
You can access the user manual for your router by going to:  http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/800/850/software/configuration/guide/857sg_bk.pdf

But simply put,  - You have to enable the web interface in Hyperterminal/Telnet/Terminal - To connect to your router this way, open your Terminal and type the following commands in order:
1) enable (enter password if necc.) 2.) config term 3.) ip http server (this command might also be set to "no ip http server") 4.) exit
After doing the above: 1.) Press Cntrl+Z 2.) Go to Copy, Run, Start 3.) Open your browser and go to "10.10.10.1"
Good luck! -TJ
