CISCO 2600 Router Troubleshooting

When I switch on the CISCO Router 2600, the response is that only the POWER and RPS LEDs become yellow - with the RPS LED flashing about once in one second. What could be the problem? Is it the power supply that has got a problem or the router itself?

Thanks in advance,

This is the indicator configuration for the 2600, if the lights are yellow there is a problem.

The following indicator LEDs provide power, activity, and status information:
POWER (green)—Lit when power is on
RPS (green)
Off—No redundant power supply (RPS) is present
Blinking—System is booted, RPS is present, RPS failure
Continuous on—System is booted, RPS is present, no RPS failure
ACTIVITY (green)
Slow, steady blinking—System is booting
Blinks during system activity, such as interrupts and packet transfers
I suggest going to for full documentation on this product.

    I forgot to add:

    To tell what is going wrong, you need to connect a con cable to the unit before starting it, then start hyperterm on your computer set it to:

    Your PC terminal emulation program is configured for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity.

    This will give you a complete listing of what the unit is doing.

    If you don't have a com cable, they are available on ebay and many other sites on the internet for less them $20.

    Let me know if this helps...

Linsys ea6500 blinking

If the Power or Diag LED (Light Emitting Diode) on your Linksys router is blinking, it means the firmware is corrupted. If this happens, you won't be able to do the following:
• Access the router's web-based setup page
• Assign IP addresses to computers connected to your router using its DHCP capabilities
NOTE: This also applies if your router's LED is dimly illuminated.
Listed below are the things that you can do to solve this issue:
Powercycle the router
Assign a static IP address to your computer
Ping the router
Reset the router
Update/Re-flash the firmware using the TFTP utility

Cisco 876 doesn't work properly. After 1 to 3 working hours, all upper leds (OK,CD,TX,RX,PPP etc) are going off, except the 4 ethernet leds that flash all together. Switching off and then on, router starts...

It looks it is hardware problem.
1) Try to upgrade the firmware to latest available version.
2) Try to use another power supply with the same output voltage and same or higher current.
3) Check the unit cooling. Air flow obstacles or device placing in small closed box may lead to overheating.

But I am afraid that some HW part inside device is defective and must be replaced.

Cisco 876 doesn't work at all

The power adapter maybe faulty. Test the voltage on the plug that connects to the router with a multimeter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If the voltage is low or zero then the adapter needs to be replaced.

Power, DMZ, WLAN leds OFF. Ethernet, Internet are solid ON.

With the signs that you have describe about your router, this is a clear signs that the router is already bad the hardware itself and better have it replace if still under warranty if not you need to go get a new one sorry about that router is dead already.

Cisco 1750 not showing anything in cli in hyperterm

First, make sure your terminal settings are correct.  Also, make sure you are using the right cable.  Cisco provides a flat, blue console cable with every router and switch.
Cisco lists the necessary terminal settings for most of their models here:
Power off the router and then power it back on.
If you are still not seeing any characters through your terminal application, then the router is most likely dead and will need to be replaced.
