When it is turned back on, initiate a break (ctrl-break, or whatever it is for your term emulator). When it gets to rommon, just do thisrommon1>confreg 0x2142rommon2>resetWhen it resets, answer "no" to "do you want to configure blablabla?" or whatever the exact wording is...then it will say "Press RETURN to get started!"---when you get to router>, just do this...router>enrouter#erase start"Are you sure"...whatever it says---answer "y"router#conf trouter(config)#config-reg 0x2102router(config)#endrouter#wrYou should not have to do "erase start", since after you change the config register back to 2102, and after that you do a "wr" with no other config changes, you are over writing NVRAM, esentially resetting it to factory defaults, except without a password (Cisco routers new come with an IP address of like 10.10.10.1 and a default password). HOWEVER, I always do "erase start" for kicks, good measure. I am a backup plan type man./ tim@tim-laptop ~ $ sudo apt-get install windowsReading package lists...
