Cisco 2900xl switch - can't type anything in console?

My 2900 series router won't accept input in putty. i get all the output in the beginning, but once it's finished loading and doing post, it just sits there, and i know its on and working because when i unplug devices from the ports, it says line protocol changed state to up, etc.

i think my console port is gone, but im not sure.

    How are you connecting to the switch using Putty? Via the console port or using telnet?

Login with you aux port and then do a show run and see if you have "no exec" under your con 0 and vty 0 4. If so then:

  1. config t
  2. line con 0
  3. exec
  4. line vty 0 4
  5. exec

Please try using Hyperterminal, it's in accessories> communications>
Use com port and click on "restore default" on next window and then ok. Then try typing it will probably work.
The console port is fine as you can see all the outputs coming from there.
Try changing the settings in putty under keyboard, make sure the bit rate selected is 9600bps.

SOURCE: Cisco error on switch

%SYS-4-P2_WARN: 1/Tag 0 The switch generates %SYS-4-P2_WARN: 1/Tag 0… messages.
This example shows the syslog output that you see when this error occurs:
%SYS-4-P2_WARN: 1/Tag [dec] on packet from [ether] port [chars],
but port's native vlan is [dec] This message indicates that an 802.1Q-tagged packet was received on a nontrunk port. The VLAN that is derived from the packet tag is different from the port native VLAN. In the error message:

  • The Tag [dec] is the VLAN identifier from the packet.
  • The [ether] is the host MAC address.
  • The port [chars] is the port identifier.
  • The second [dec] is the native VLAN number.
There is a possibility that the local port is incorrectly configured as an access port instead of a trunk port. Alternately, the remote side can have been configured as a trunk port instead of an access port.
Verify that the local port is not incorrectly configured as an access port instead of a trunk port. Also, verify that the remote side is not configured as a trunk port instead of an access port.

SOURCE: cisco catalyst 3500xl (24 port) bad console

It is possible that your console port is configured for a different baud rate. Try to change your baud rate on your hyper terminal going from 115200 down to 2400. If it doesn't work you might have a problem with 232 driver chip that is located on the board next to your console port. You will not be able to find a schematics for this switch, it is not available for the public.
You can send this switch to me. I will glad to fix it for you.

Good luck.

SOURCE: How do I connect cable modem to cisco 3560 switch and configure it?

The cable modem will need to go through a router because it needs a NAT and PAT translation table, connecting the cable modem direct would lose the ability to get to the internet.

I was wondering if the PWR-2911-POE and PWR-2911-AC can be installed in same 2911 router? Thanks.


No, both of them are power supplies. PWR-2911-AC is the standard power supply but the PWR-2911-POE is a bigger power supply to power up EHWIC or single/double-width line cards. Moreover, there is no physical way to put two same/different power supplies into a 2900 router. But 3800/3900 routers can support dual power supplies.

If you are confused with the complicated procedure to reset or change the password on a router, or if you are trying to configure a Cisco router, but a password is blocking you from enable mode, don't worry, just do the steps as follows, password reset on a router is no longer upset to everyone.<br /><br />First, be informed that what you need:<br />.<a href="http://www.router-switch.com/Price-cisco-routers_c1">Cisco Router</a><br />.Computer<br />.Internet Connection<br />.Blue Serial Cable<br /><br />Guide for You to Reset Password on a Cisco Router:<br />1. Download a program called Putty from the first resource site below. PuTTy is a terminal emulator application which can act as a client for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin, and raw TCP computing protocols (PuTTy on Wikipedia).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PuTTY<br /><br />2. Connect one end of the blue serial cable to the Cisco Router and the other to your computer. Open up the Putty program on your computer and select the radio button next to "serial" on the right-hand side of the start window. Click on the "Open" button in the bottom right-hand corner of the Putty start window to open the terminal.<br /><br />3. Power the Cisco Router on. As soon as the router begins loading in the green and black Putty terminal window, press the "Ctrl" and "Break" keys simultaneously until its going into rommon mode.<br /><br /><br />4. Once in rommon mode, you have to change the configuration register number to make the router boot from a blank configuration file.

Search on cisco.com for information on your particular <a href="http://www.router-switch.com/Price-cisco-routers_c1">Cisco Router Series</a>.<br /><br />5. Type the restart command in rommon mode, which is "reset". This will boot the router up again.

Once you change the running-config in RAM and save it to the startup-config in NVRAM, remember to change the configuration register number back to its default (usually 0x2102). This is important if you change anything on the running-config. <br /><br />Easy five steps help you finish resetting password on a Cisco router. Easy instruction, easy to follow. <br /><br />

How to Select a Very Right Router for Home or Business


No matter which group you belong to or stay with? If you want to connect outside world through computer, router is an essential element of modern home and business networks. A router lets your computer connect to the Web to read your favorite Web sites, check e-mail, IM friends, or teleconference with colleagues....

When we speak of routers, I usually think of Cisco---a network giant, even though so many others such as Nortel, D-link, Netgear, etc. Because Cisco router is considered as the top choice while choosing a router for home or office, and the more important is that Cisco System offer SOHO, small, medium and large-sized offices or enterprises with different types of routers to meet their different needs.

As we known, the popular Cisco router in the market are Cisco 800 series, Cisco 1800 series, Cisco 1900 series, Cisco 2800, Cisco 2900, Cisco 3800, 3900, 7200 and 7600, etc.(for small to large businesses), also Cisco Linksys-E series for home.

More choice, harder to select the very one for family or for enterprise. But it doesn't matter if you evaluate and weigh the following eight criteria that can help you figure out which router best fits your needs.

Your Usage and Router's Performance For home or for office (small or large size?), first be clear about it. Different demands require different performance of router. For example, choosing a one for family, you may just want to surf on the internet, no need of a router as a heavy-duty gamer or a small business, Cisco Linksys-E series will fit you. Because you know the more expensive the router, the more features it will contain. However, it doesn't necessarily buy a higher performance router. And for business, especially for large or head offices, router's higher performance and safety is vital elements which must be considered while buying. Cisco 1800, 1900, 2800, 2900(for small to medium-sized business or enterprise branch office, Cisco 3800, Cisco 3900, Cisco 7200, Cisco 7600(for medium to large-sized business and enterprise head office), these types can meet companies' various requirements...

Expandability The router usually has a default number of interfaces-but some routers, such as the 3600 series, have none. So, pay attention to the number of interfaces you can add on top of the default.

Router's Integrated Services This refers to functionality supported by a router that previously required separate boxes. For example, a 16- or 32-port switching module in a router negates the need for an Ethernet switch; having a firewall, VPN server, and IDS/IPS sensor in a router can negate the need for a firewall, VPN concentrator, and dedicated IDS/IPS appliance.

Support and Reliability Cisco routers are traditionally reliable, and Cisco is always offering a high level of support. When purchasing a router, you will have various levels of support options. Select the best level for your organization. Of course, using these features in your decision-making process requires some research. You could peruse the Cisco Routers Product Portfolio, scan through the specifications, and select the router yourself. Or, you could also use the criteria above to work with are seller or directly with Cisco to determine which routers offer the features you need.

Warranties Router manufacturers always provide a warranty package together with their equipment. The length and terms of these warranties vary widely. A better warranty may indicate a manufacturer more committed to support their products, while a lesser warranty could indicate a somewhat lesser standard of product quality or reliability. Always consider router warranties when making your purchase decision.

Router's Cost Router manufacturers or router suppliers (like Cisco router supplier) sometimes offer rebates or other discounts from the full retail price of their routers. So you can buy a suitable router at a very great price while router is at a big discount. (Routerswitch.com, hardware.com, often have big discount for hot routers, like Cisco 1800, Cisco 1900, Cisco 2800, Cisco 2900, etc.

Actually, besides considering router's basic function, performance, quality and style, you must notice router's price. So you'd better make a comparison among different routers in order to choose a highly efficient and cost-effective one.

More you need pay attention to while buying a router...
