    I have a CISCO 2500 router, which I got while I did a major hardware
    upgrade, I just need to erase everything on it and configure as
    factory default, I don't know much about Cisco stuff, which cable
    should I use on which port!!

    If you have the exec & enable passwords, go into enable mode and do a
    'write erase'. Reload or powercycle the router. Done.

    If you do not have the passwords do a password recovery like this:

    What if someone has set a password in the rom monitor,
    I try the following and get an access error.

    1.. Type o/r 0x2142 and press Enter at the > prompt to boot from Flash
    without loading the configuration.

    2.. Type i at the > prompt and press Enter.
