Page 22 of the 3com user guide for your switch talks about how to use the console cable and how to connect to your pc, I included the link below for your manual, if you don't have it:

I forgot ip address and password and want to factory reset


Connect the console cable, open a connection to the serial port via a utility such as PuTTY, and do the following:
1) Enter the user name "recover" and password "recover" to place your unit in password recovery mode. The unit will remain in password recovery mode for 30 seconds max.
2) Perform a hard reset by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, and then re-applying power.
3) Once the switch has rebooted, enter a new password for the "admin" user account.
4) Enter enable to leave password recovery enabled, or enter disable to turn it off. You are now logged in as the default "admin" user.
Note: If password recovery has been disabled, the only way to recover access is to return the switch to 3com.

Forgot ip address and password


To re-enable the Console access requires the SW2900 series to be reset to its default settings via the WEB INTERFACE
- Web Interface
- Device >Configuration >Initialize To change the Default User "ADMIN" password it is necessary to use the Console connection
-Console Interface
-Once the unit has successfully booted and the prompt presented
-Enter "password" (without "")
-Enter "admin" when the system prompts for User
-Press the "Enter" key when the system prompts for "Old Password" (the ADMIN password was reset by the Web Interface commands)
-Enter "" when the system prompts for the New Password (where "" is the new product ADMIN password)
-Enter "" when the system prompts to confirm the New Password In order to complete the configuration it is necessary to save the configuration via the WEB INTERFACE
-Web Interface
-Device > Configuration > Save
Symptom:
SW2900 Baseline Switch - Default console access disabled following password change
From the web interface, the default user "admin" password is changed and console access is disabled
Cause:
When applying the new password, by default the service-type is set to "telnet". When applied, the default "terminal" setting is removed thus disabling console access.

I have 3Com Baseline Switch 2924-SFP Plus i need to manage it but i forget the administrator password how can i reset this switch to manufacture configuration or how to reset the password


First,"There is usually a small button on routers that can be accessed with the tip of a pen or a paperclip. When you find that tiny button, hold your pen or paperclip down on it for approximately 10 seconds until the router resets itself to factory defaults."
After that, you can contact the manufacturer to get some helps if you still have problem.

BTW,
I work for Ingellen Communication Equipment and we are a large fiber optic equipments manufacturer in Shenzhen.Kindly let me know your specific requirements so that i can help

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.

Not connect from console port


Verify that the correct settings and cable/connectors (rollover cable, correct COM port specified) are being used when establishing the console connection.

From the manual-

3.9.2 Connecting to an IBM or Compatible Device

To connect an IBM PC or compatible device, running the VT terminal emulation, to an
Enterasys Networks module Console port (Figure 3-20), proceed as follows:
1. Connect the RJ45 connector at one end of the cable (not supplied) to the Console port on the
Enterasys Networks module.
Connecting to Console Port for Local Management
Hardware Installation 3-31
2. Plug the RJ45 connector at the other end of the cable into the RJ45-to-DB9 adapter (supplied
with the device).
3. Connect the RJ45-to-DB9 adapter to the communications port on the PC.
4. Turn on the PC and configure your VT emulation package with the following parameters:

Parameter Setting
Mode: 7 Bit Control
Transmit: Transmit=9600
Bits Parity: 8 Bits, No Parity
Stop Bit: 1 Stop Bit

How can configure trunk


not sure about the 3COM side, but on the Cisco side... go to the configure prompt, then the port that you need to trunk (int [interface name and number] and enter)

Once you are in the interface, use the following command:
switchport trunk encap dot1q
switchport mode trunk

Then make sure that the interface is not shut down, connect the switches together and (hopefully) the 3COM will negotiate to trunking... if not you will need to manually configure the 3com.

Hope that this 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.

Link and activity lights on 3Com Switch ports without connection


Do the ports work when the cables are connect?  I did some re-search and this seems to be an ongoing issue with 3com switches.  It should not effect the use of the switch
