Normally this is the command used to access a new image for loading.. see if these commands work for you:

Router(boot)>enable
##Normally, this is where you would load the new image file##
Router(boot)#reload
If not, then you may have to run these:

Router(boot)#configure terminal
Router(boot)(config)#config-register 0x2102
Router(boot)(config)#exit
Router(boot)#
Router(boot)#reload

Cisco 3925 Router Password Recovery


TheCisco 3925 router is part of a family of networking equipment produced byCisco, which has been a network equipment giant for many years. Used 3925routers are available on the Internet at reasonable prices, so acquiring one isnot difficult. However, if the password is unknown or lost, reconfiguration isimpossible until the password is reset or recovered.

Cisco has built in aprocedure for rescuing lost or forgotten passwords or entering new passwords.
ThingsYou'll Need: Serial to RJ-45 cable;Terminal emulation software
Instructions
1.Connect your computer to the router with the blue serial-to-RJ-45 cable thatcame with the router.
The 9-pin D-shell end connects to your computer's serialport, while the RJ-45 end connects to the console jack on the router.
The RJ-45end resembles a slightly larger telephone jack connector.

2.Turn on your computer and establish a terminal session to the 3925. You can use any terminal emulator, and many are freely available on the Internet.
Configure the session settings as follows:9600baud8data bitsNoparity1stop nonflowering controllable router's power cable into an electrical outlet, and as the 3925 boots, you should see the Cisco boot messages.

If you don't see any output on your computer's terminal session, check your settings on the session and restart itif necessary.
Press "Break" within 30 seconds of powering on the router to enter rommon (rom monitor) mode.

3.Type "confreg 0x2142" and press "Enter" at the "rommon1>" prompt. This will cause the router to boot from its internal flashmemory without loading the configuration into memory.
At the following"rommon 2>" prompt, type "reset" and press"Enter."
This will cause the router to reload and ignore thepreviously saved configuration file.

4.Respond "no" and press "Enter" when prompted for responsesto enter the initial dialog or basic management setup.
Type "enable"and press "Enter" at the following "Router>" prompt.This will put you into enable mode and display the "Router#" prompts.Copy the non-volatile memory into memory with the "copy start up-config running-config" command, followed by the "Enter" key. Type"sho run" at the prompt and press "Enter" to display the current configuration, including the passwords, some of which may be encrypted.

5.Type "config t" at the prompt and press "Enter." At the"Router(config)#" prompt, type "enable secret <pswd>"-- where "pswd" is the password -- and press "Enter." Atthis point, your enable password is reset. Press "Ctrl" +"z" to return to the "Router#" prompt.

6.Type "config t" at the "Router#" prompts and presses"Enter." At the "Router(config)#" prompt, type"config-register 0x02102" and press "Enter" to reset theboot register to its normal setting. Press "Ctrl" + "z" toleave configuration mode. Type "copy running-config startup-config"and press "Enter" to save your changes. Reboot the router and youshould be able to login with your password.

I have cisco 1841 router stuck at Rommon> only IOS is ok,but still in this mode/.


what shows the following?

dir flash: If IOS is ok the follow the below step The router will guide you through changing the registry. You want to press y to chang the configuration. The only other change you need to make is the change to the console baud rate, set that to 7 (115200).

do you wish to change the configuration? y/n [n]: y
enable "diagnostic mode"? y/n [n]:
enable "use net in IP bcast address"? y/n [n]:
enable "load rom after netboot fails"? y/n [n]:
enable "use all zero broadcast"? y/n [n]:
disable "break/abort has effect"? y/n [n]:
enable "ignore system config info"? y/n [n]:
change console baud rate? y/n [n]: y
enter rate: 0 = 9600, 1 = 4800, 2 = 1200, 3 = 2400
4 = 19200, 5 = 38400, 6 = 57600, 7 = 115200 [0]: 7
change the boot characteristics? y/n [n]:

Configuration Summary
enabled are:
break/abort has effect
console baud: 115200
boot: the ROM Monitor

do you wish to change the configuration? y/n [n]:
You must reset or power cycle for new config to take effect.

rommon 2>

3. When you reset the router in your console window you will see characters that you cannot read. You have to stop the session and set your baud rate to 115200. This will let you increase the speed that you use to transfer the file.
4. At the rommon prompt enter xmodem -c {filename}
5. When prompted, enter y to continue
6. From your hyperterminal prompt, click on transfter then send file
7. Select the IOS image then change the protocol to xmodem via the dropdown box then click send.
8. After the IOS has been downloaded, change the boot order by using the confreg 0x2102 command.

Help me plz


cisco routers make use of an IOS software for configurations.

you have to connect the router to a computer system through an hyper terminal program in order to access the router command interface,there is no way you will be able to configure this router without having cisco configurations knowledge.

the steps could be complex/complecated for a novice.but all the same,

after running the hyper terminal program on your computer to connect the router(start-accessories-communication-hyper terminal) make sure you use cisco serial cable or a cat5e roll over cable.

press the enter key once and type 'enable' then press enter,

configure terminal,to take you to a global configuration mode.

i will advice that you should contact a cisco person in your area for help

Cisco 1721 router problem


Does the router boot to rommon mode everytime you turn it on?

There are two reasons why the router could be booting to rommon mode

1. There isn't a valid ios image loaded in flash memory
2. The configuration register is set to a number that ends with '0'

Change the configuration register setting to a number that ends in '2'. (i.e. 0x2402)

You do this with the command: confreg 0x2402 <hit enter key> (in rommon mode)

Reboot the router and it will first search for boot system commands in the startup config, if none found it will boot to the first valid ios image in flash memory.

If there isn't a valid ios image in flash memory, the router will continue to boot to rommon.
