Question about Cisco Computers & Internet
Need help to recover the forgotten password of your Cisco router? The following guide will help you restore the password without losing your router configuration. To retrieve the password, you will require rebooting your router many times. It means stoppage, but it is the best step to reset the password. At first, you need to connect the first end of the standard light blue cable to the power port and the other end to the 'Console' port on the back of your router. After connecting the devices, you need to make a serial connection to the router. For that, you need the following settings:
Data bits: 8
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: None
To recover the Cisco router password, check the following steps:-
1.Restart your Cisco router and press the 'Break' key to conflict the boot order. Input config 0x2142. It conveys the router to avoid NVRAM in the boot process. It won't load your current configuration.
2.Enter reset to restart your router. When asked to run the setup process, choose 'No.' Enter 'Copy Start, Run.' It loads the beginning setup into memory.
3.Now, if you enter the 'Show Run Config,' it will show you the router settings. Also, you should consider that the router name is in the prompt rather than the default 'Router.'
4.Type the 'enable secret new password' to change the enabled secret, and then enter the 'config-register 0x2102' to modify the registry settings back to 0x2102.
5.Once your router restarts, it will load the old settings along with the new password. Now, you need to save it so that it will continue during restarts.
6.Enter copy run start. Type Reload at the prompt to reboot the Cisco router.
Now, note down the password to keep them safe. However, if the steps as given above fail to recover the Cisco router password without losing the configuration or you need the help of experts, you can call on the genuine Cisco customer care number listed on the Contactforhelp to get the direct support of experts for recovering the password quickly.

It is possible to configure your router via a web browser. Although it’s disabled by default, your router has its own mini HTTP server built in. This provides another way to gain access to the router for the purpose of issuing commands. To enable the HTTP server, you have to use the command "ip http server" from the global configuration mode.
cisco(config)#ip http server
Then open a web browser and point it to one of your router’s IP addresses. The interface is not really nice, but you can issue commands using hyperlinks.
For security reasons I still suggest that you keep the HTTP server turned off, since it offers just another point of access for potential hacking.
What is so bad about the command line? Configuring port forwarding is actually pretty easy, once you know the commands.
Type show ip interface to find the name of the interface you want to set port forwarding for.
The show ip nat translations command shows you the current port forwards on Router.
Type configure to enter the configuration mode
The command for port forwarding is: ip nat inside source static (TCPorUDP) (YourComputersIP) (PortToForward) interface (name)(PortToForward)
in you case:
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.0.1 5900 interface (name) 5900
ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.0.2 5901 interface (name) 5901
replace (name) with the interface name you got from the first command.
Then press CTRL-Z to end the Configure Session
Type copy run start once you tested your settings and press ENTER for the question Destination filename [startup-config]?
I have heard of some commercial tools that let you configure your router via web interface, but they are very expensive (around 1400$).
You can try it out for 14 days. Go here.
If you want to play with a free one, go to Cisco (link) and check it out. (You have to be a member though.)
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

SOURCE: Motorola..routers with cieso
sure as long as want to configure them for TCP/IP not sure what else you would be talking about other than maybe VPN. I'm assuming the motorola is a cable modem...not much configuring there... more info would be required to be definitive but overall the answer is yes.
