  1. You need to connect via a console serial cable with suitable terminal software running.
  2. Power on the switch.
  3. Hit any key when prompted by boot process about 10 seconds after power-up to get to boot/diagnostic menu.
  4. Enter c
  5. Press enter (which accepts the defaults) until line displays: "Boot Flags :0xb"
  6. Enter 0x1000
  7. Press enter until back at the "[Boot]:" prompt
  8. Enter S to save settings (thats a capital S)
  9. Enter @ to boot
The switch should now be back to factory defaults.

I need to access my NetgearN150 from a command prompt as the GUI is not working can someone tell me if there are telnet or ssh commands available for this unit? The following lists the systems I am...

I think if you're using stock firmware you might be out of luck using ssh.
Still try telnet. (telnet IP address) if it was enabled before on the router (disabled by default.) If you have Win 7 you have to enable telnet in "Programs and Features/Turn Windows features on or off".
Find more info here.
Anyways - I would first try a 30-30-30 reset.
  1. Hold reset button for 30 sec.
  2. pull power whilst holding the reset button for another 30 sec.
  3. plug in power and keep the reset button holding for an additional 30 sec.
Let me know how that goes.

enter your ip address in your browser and press enter.

enter login details for router. it can be admin and admin.

go to settings and select restore factory default.

Or look on the back of the Router next to the on/off switch is a small micro switch that says reset. press it with a paper clip or something with a small point.

Access denied

yes, you should be able to connect to the console port using a roll-over cable RJ45-DB9, connect using hyper terminal or similar using the com port settings 9600,8,N,1
You can then configure the switch from the CLI...

Have you set the 'Login' command on the VTY lines in the switch setup and an IP address on the management VLAN to connect to.
You also HAVE to have a password enabled on the vty lines in order to connect via telnet.

hope this helps.

I want to factory reset my nortel AP 7220, how do I reset? What would be default IP after reset?

There is probably a reset button somewhere on the device, it is probably a small pinhole that you put a paper-clip into the reset.
If it has its own http web page, there is likely a reset to factory defualts option.

The ip of the computer connecting to it should not change.
On a computer connected to it, open cmd start>run then type in cmd, and type 'ipconfig'.
It will display details about your connection. Where it says 'default gateway' is the ip of the device.
You could try to put the ip in your browser and see if the device has a web page.

Cannot log into the SMC8024l2 switch via ethernet or console and after resetting to factory defaults still cannot ping the device at the default IP Address or the IP address it was set up on.

Looks to me like they never implemented the serial port. The used unit I just obtained has no signal on the serial console pins and no SMC documentation beyond plugging it in appears to exist. Likewise with TELNET access.

However you can reset the switch to factory defaults with the following procedure from a pop-up window off the login page. It worked for me.


If you have forgotten the administration password you can return the Switch to its factory default state by doing the following:

1) Remove the power cord from the back of the Switch.
2) Remove all cables from the front-panel ports.
3) Connect port 1 to port 2, on the front panel, using a standard network cable.
4) Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the Switch.
5) Wait at least 40 seconds before disconnecting port 1 from port 2.

After completing this procedure, the password will be 'smcadmin' and the network address will be returned to the default;

Connection problem using telnet and web...

Not a definite solution but there are two things you can try.

Firstly, disconnect all cables and power supply to the router and leave it switched off for a minimum of 10 - 15 mins.

Reconnect everything and wait until all the lights on the router stop flashing.
Finally, go to the wireless icon on the toolbar, rick click and select "repair". This will reset the wireless adaptor.

Good luck.
