  1. I have a question.

    Ok , so I got this Cisco 2501 router, and i want to get into it. It is just
    laying around. I am thinking that I'll t-net into it to work on it, but
    with no password I can do nothing to it. So my question is, is there no way
    to reset it the way you would reset the BIOS on a computer? So as to start
    from scratch?

    You need physical access to the router, but you seem to have that.... good

    Assuming you have a rollover cable and the
    appropriate RJ45-to-DB9 or RJ45-to-DB25 cable,
    you connect a RS232/V24-capable terminal [or a
    PC reunning appropriate terminal-emulation
    software] to the CON port of the router, then
    follow the Cisco-documented "password recovery"
