There are two main methods to return a Cisco router to its original factory defaults. These two methods are described below.
Method 1
1. uses the config-register 0x2102 command in global configuration mode.
2. Check the configuration register on the router by issuing the show version command.
3. The configuration register setting is displayed in the last line of the show version command output and should be set to 0x2102. If this is not the case, enter the config-register 0x2102 command once in global configuration mode.
router#configure terminal
router(config)#config-register 0x2102
router(config)#end
router#
4. If the show version command is issued again, the same line in the command output will have '(will be 0x2102 at next reload)' appended to the current register setting.
5. Erase the current start-up configuration on the router with the write erase command.
Reload the router with the reload command. When prompted to save the configuration, DO NOT save.
router#reload
System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: n
Proceed with reload? [confirm]
Once the router reloads, the System Configuration Dialog appears.
--- System Configuration Dialog ---
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:
The router is now reset to the original factory defaults.
Method 2
1. uses the config-register 0x2142 command in global configuration mode.
2. Enter the config-register 0x2142 command in global configuration mode.
router(config)#config-register 0x2142
This causes the router to ignore the start-up configuration on the next reload. If a show version is issued, the last line in the command output will have '(will be 0x2142 at next reload)' appended to the current configuration register setting.
3. Reload the router using the reload command in enable mode. It is not necessary to save when prompted to save the system configuration.
router#reload
System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: n
Proceed with reload? [confirm]
After the router has reloaded, the System Configuration Dialog appears.
4. Enter no to the question "Would you like to enter initial configuration dialog?"
5. Change the configuration register setting to 0x2102 by entering the config-register 0x2102 command once in global configuration mode.
6. Issue the write memory command in enable mode to overwrite the existing start-up configuration with the current running configuration.
7. Reload the router with the reload command in enable mode.
Once the router reloads, the System configuration Dialog appears.
--- System Configuration Dialog ---
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:
The router is now reset to the original factory defaults.
Note: The configurations below are stored in ROMMON, and cannot be reset to Factory Default Settings by the write erase or config-register 0x2142 commands.
warm-reboot
memory-size iomem <not default>

SOURCE: cisco 857 router

You might need to reset the password. In order to do this, follow these directions:

  1. Console into the router, then power cycle it. As its rebooting hit the "break | pause" button on your keyboard, and you get to the rommon1> prompt.
  2. Then type rommon1>confreg 2142 rommon2>reset
  3. The router comes back on as if it were new---answer no to the first question, and sometimes it asks a second question (do you want to terminate autoinstall, or something...)---answer yes to the secondquestion if it asks. Then hit enter and you get router> in a few seconds.
  4. Then router>en router#copy start run

create a new account:
  1. router#conf t
  2. router(config)#username bob priv 15 password bob
set register back:
  1. router(config)#confreg 0x2102
  2. router(config)#exit
  3. router#wr
  4. router#reboot

and that should let you login with bob/bob

Forgot my password to my cisco router


On the back of your router is a 'reset' button. Use a toothpick or a pen to press it for approximately 5 seconds. Once this is done you can log in with the default user and password.

I can find the default user and password for you, but I'll need the model of your router to do that. However most likely the user will be 'admin' and the password will be 'admin' or the password will be blank.

If you need a list of cisco routers and their default users and passwords, you can find them here: CISCO Router Passwords

Default password for a Cisco SG200-26? cisco, cisco do not work .. ??


I had the same issue after what I thought was a succesful reset. It turns out I hadn't reset the switch completely. There is a reset pin hole next to the power switch. Hold it in with a paper clip for at least 30 seconds. ( I was holding in the power button for 30 seconds.)Then you can use the cisco admin and cisco for password defaults. Hope this helps someone in the future since I spent WAY TOO MUCH TIME on it :)

Default pasword


Cisco switches dont have a default password.
You will have to perform a password recovery process that is quite extensive.
You need to console into the switch using hyperterminal or teraterm and follow these instructions located at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps628/products_password_recovery09186a0080094184.shtml
