    Connect it up as you would normally on local network use laptop open Start menu Click Run type telnet
    and type the Local network ip assigned to the superstack and upon connection login is required enter admin login and type reset system

  • gracetel Jul 18, 2010

    Thank you 4 the information. My problem is that I bought this switch in an auction and I do not have any info. I beleive that all default settings such as the IP address and password has been changed. Can I somehow do it another way? Thanks for your help.

    Use a ip scanner E.g Angry ip scanner
    And scan 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.255.255 it will take some time but then will find the ip's for devices on your local network make sure the superstack is connected to the network correctly like hook it up to the same internet.


    using login recover and password recover
    or admin and password = password

  • gracetel Jul 18, 2010

    Thank you, I ran the angry ip tool but could not find it the range I entered. I could not fix it tonight but I will come back to it next week. Is there a button you just can push and reset it. Please let me know. Thanks for your help and take care.

    No button to push and reset, Only way to reset is using an external command tool like telnet
    to tell box to reset, A Local store if you are unable to do it may do it for a little charge if you are unsure how to link it up

My problem is i have all yellow ports flashing in 10 3com 3300 switches in the same time. please help me


  1. Using a Null-Modem Cable , hook up the Console port of the switch to an available COM port on a computer (cable must be able to provide serial port communication between 2 computers).
  2. Set up a Hyperterminal session to that COM port (e.g.: com1), with the port settings at 9600/8/N/1/N (. When the screen comes up blank with a blinking cursor, hit [enter] once or twice to bring up a login prompt.
  3. Alternative to 1 and 2 above, if there is a known assigned TCP/IP address for the switch, one can telnet to that address, hit [enter] once or twice to get the login prompt.
  4. Default logins to try are admin/(no password) or security/security. One of those 2 should bring up the management menu.
  5. To reset factory defaults, type SYSTEM[enter] then type INITIALIZE[enter]. This will reset everything that has been set up on the switch, with the exception of the TCP/IP address, if there is one. All other previous configurations will need to be re-entered.
  6. You can type in username "3comcso" and password "RIP000". It will ask you to reinitialize the switch. This will reset all settings including passwords.

Inherited 2 switches 3com 4228g (3c17403) password problem


I haven't worked with these switches but generally settings such as ip address and factory defaults can be set through the Console Interface (CLI). You will need a null-modem cable to access this and a terminal client (Windows Hyperterminal works).

Hope that helps

I cann't connect to my switch


The primary connection method for those switches would be serial connection. In the box there should have been a DB9 serial to RJ45 cable. Hyperterminal default settings would allow you to connect.
