    Hi, I've got two 2948G 48 ports switch that I have been trying to reset back to default settings, assign name, and ip address.

    I'd follow these steps:

    1. Connect via serial to console port (Use these terminal settings-9600 baud rate/No parity/8 data bits/1 stop bit)

    2. Turn off the switch, and then turn the switch back on
    Wait a few minutes after the power reset, if necessary, for the switch to present the first password prompt.

    Important: After the presentation of the first password prompt, you have 30 seconds to complete the recovery procedure that follows in Steps 3–7. Because you only have 30 seconds to complete this procedure, press Enter whenever the switch prompts you for an old or new password. This action is the equivalent of the entry of a null character and allows you to complete the recovery quickly.

    A failure of any of the steps that follow indicates that you have exceeded the 30-second time limit. If you exceed the limit, you need to power off/on the switch again. You need to return to Step 3 and start the procedure over.

    3. Press Enter at the password prompt to enter a null password
    4. Type enable at the prompt to enter enable mode.
    5. Press Enter at the password prompt to enter a null password.
    6. Type clear config all
    This command will clear all configuration in NVRAM.
    This command will cause ifIndex to be reassigned on the next system startup.

    2002 Aug 03 15:16:19 %MLS-5-MCAST_STATUS:IP Multicast Multilayer Switching is disabled.
    System configuration cleared.
    7. Then type set password and enter password
    8. The type set enablepass and enter this password.

    thought it's appears that i succeed, but this is also where i am stuck.

    what i have at this point is ...console>

    i run the enable command and that's about it. i don't know the next command (configure terminal didn't work) to assign the ip address and name.

    thanks,
    Tom
