Question about 3Com Computers & Internet
Do an Ip scan on your network, there are many tools out there ( eg. pingtest). you will identify the router and be able to see its new IP address. from there, you may log into it with the web interface( browser). otherwise, post back for a followup

Are you using any firewall. If so, try disabling it and try to communicate the switch once again. I am sure it might be an issue with the security software.
Thanks and regards,

Connect switch to win xp computer's com1 port with console cable . Then go to start menu->all programs->accessories->communication->hyper terminal. Then configure connection follow the procedure then you can access switch. Load optimal defaults Port speed bit per second when it ask. Then you can access switch with console. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Do a hard reset. You should find the default username and password at the bottom of the router. You will use that to connect to the router after the hard reset.

I'm assuming that you did a hardware reset to factory defaults and several power cycles to no avail. In that case if even after you flashed a new firmware the switch is inaccessible then it's not a settings problem (because the reflash has wiped everything), the switch itself is defective at a hardware level.
This cannot be fixed, the switch is dead, sorry for the bad news.
