Question about Computers & Internet
I have a CISCO 1720 router, when I bootup the router my HyperTerminal Session runs through the system bootstrap and then goes to a rommon command line.
Here's a copy of the session output:
System Bootstrap Version 12.0(3)T, Release Software (fc1)
Copyright (c) 1999 by cisco Systems, Inc
C1700 platform with 32768 Kbytes of main memory
rommon 1 >
Has something happened to the memory on this thing? Maybe a power surge has knocked it out?
Can anyone shed any light on this or provide me with a solution?
All this on the very day that I am to have static IP's installed in my new house and utilise my CISCO Router...
Your router is in the wrong mode. You need to change this by changing the conf-register to 0x2102
at the rommon prompt type in
If there are any errors you can get the correct syntax by typing ? at the rommon prompt the line number will go up on every line.
The way to get into rommon mode is by pressing the break key from Hyperterminal as the router is rebooting. So make sure you don't do this by accident. If you do just reboot by power cycling.
Your Startup Config should be unchanged, but you need to be very careful what you do in rommon mode it is easy to blat stuff.
Any changes you make once you get into the command (enable) mode should be saved by
copy running-config startup-config
Any problems just let me know.
good feed back would be much appreciated.
