Cisco Routers :: WRV210-A V01 Reset To Factory Default?

Oct 30, 2011

I have a WRV210-A V01 (Software: router that when originally purchased I upgraded the firmware to the newest However after the firmware upgrade the router has not worked right since. [I thought maybe the upgrade did not take, and successfully pushed the firmware 3x times]
Everytime you login to the webpage the right-side pane you have to scroll down 3x pages until you can see the settings options. It does that for everypage you visit you have to scroll down 3x pages until you can see the settings.
The wireless is sporadic and dropping connections, and now certain options like changing the "Basic Rate:" from "All' to "Default" does nothing and wont let you change it.
The main issue I have is that certain wireless settings like changing the "AP Isolation:" cause the router to reset back to factory defaults. and even trying to configure the LAN setup also randomly makes the router reset to factory default.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 871 Factory Reset Without Password?

Jan 24, 2012

I recently decomissioned an 871 from a small business site and the owner did not want the device anymore. So now I'm trying to use it back at the office in the sandbox, however I don't know the password to the device and neither does the business owner.  There's a reset button on the back, but from what I've read (here), it only loads a different config file found on the internal flash. Tried this, no dice. Is this essentially a bricked router now or is there anything else I can do to clear the config and repurpose it for my use?

Cisco Wireless :: AIR-LAP1142N-E-K9 / Reset To Factory Default Doesn't Work On 1142 AP

Jul 5, 2010

We have an AIR-LAP1142N-E-K9  deployed in a H-REAP setup.This AP already got the configuration from the WLC when it was deployed at a remote site.Now we moved it to another site, but it doesn't appear in the WCS and i don't see any CAPWAP debug messages on the WLC.The routing work fine between the AP and the WLC, the AP also gets an IP address from DHCP and also received Option 43 information.
Now my guess was that the AP doesn't associate with the WLC because it has the old config file and it runs in local mode(without trying to connect to the WLC).We want to reset to factory defaults because we want to delete the configuration and force the AP to get a new config from the WCS.I don't know the enable password so i had to use other methods for reseting to factory defaults.
I tried to use the information from here:[URL]I used the "MODE button":I get the following message from the console:

"button pressed for 5 seconds
process_config_recovery: set IP address and config to default"

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750G Won't Factory Default?

Jun 2, 2013

I have a 3750G that used to be a Stack Master of a stack comprised of 2 identical switches. Since then, we have removed the stack from production, and I factory defaulted the stack MEMBER and that went fine. I just held the "Mode" button on the front until the lights all lit up and then issued the reload command and the switch came back with no configuration OTHER than the vlan database I issued the "del vlan.dat" command to no avail. I just manually removed all the vlans.
The stack MASTER on the other hand will NOT go back to factory defaults, and will also NOT erase the vlan database. Everything I try will NOT work. I've tried the following
1) Hold mode button & issue a reload after the lights start flashing

2) issue "Write Erase" then issue "reload"

3) issue "Write Erase", then issue "Write", then issue "reload"

4) issue "erase start" then issue "reload" (just in case the "write erase" command is being depriciated or something weird)

5) issue "erase start" then issue "copy run start" then issue "reload"
Is there a special way to reset a StackMaster back to factory defaults?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Catalyst Express 500 Factory Reset

Sep 30, 2009

We have inherited a Catalyst Express 500 (model WS-CE500-24PC) from a company we aquired, and are having issues configuring the switch.
The switch must have been configured previously, but we don't know its IP address.  It is no longer on the network, so we can restart it as much as we need to.
We followed the factory reset process:
1)  Disconnect the switch from the power supply
2)  Reconnect the switch while holding the "SETUP" button
3)  Release the "SETUP" button when the status LEDs all turn Amber
4)  Wait for POST to complete
5)  Connect one PC to the port whose LED starts flashing
However, the PC is never given an IP address, and when we open a web browser, anything we try to browse to gives us "Page cannot be displayed", rather than the setup page for the switch.
Are there any known issues or browser/OS incompatibilities with this model of switch?  We're using Vista and Windows 7 with IE7, IE8 and Firefox 3.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 4507 R-E With Sup 10GE Factory Reset

Jul 29, 2012

I have been trying to reset my Cisco 4507 R-E with sup 10GE engines, and I am not having any luck. I have followed the following document:
I have tried "wr erase" and "erase startup-config." I cannot delete the vlan.dat file either. I am using the command "erase cat4000_flash:vlan.dat" and its not working either. I have done these commands several times with no success. When asked if I want to save the config changes, I am answering with a "no" I have not tried to depress the small "reset" button on the front of the sup engines as I read that this just restarts the switch.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Reset 2911 ISR To Factory Defaults

Feb 7, 2012

I reset my Cisco 2911 ISR to the factory defaults.  I then used the configuration guide to do the initial set-up through the CLI.  I was able to assign IPs to the GE0/0 and GE0/1 ports.  Now I cannot access the GUI device manager at all.  I was able to ping the IP of GE0/0 so I know the adapter took the IP assignment, but still no GUI access.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Default Password For 2960-C Layer 3 Switch

Dec 23, 2012

I just received a Catalyst 2960-C (WS-C2960C-8TC-L R) switch and I am unable to sign into its web GUI in order to configure it. I've tried both the Cisco Network Assistant and Internet Explorer and I am unable to log in either way. The documentation provided by Cisco states that the default password is simply cisco and that a username is unnecessary. Needless to say, it doesn't work. I've also Googled for other default passwords (such as cisco-cisco as the username-password), none of which worked either. I've also tried resetting the switch back to its factory default a few times.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 4500 / 2960 - How Layer 2 Switch Works Without Default Gateway

Aug 14, 2012

4500 switch is connected to 2960 switch.
4500  config
Vlan 10
name Data
It has ip helper configured that points to DHCP.From 4500  switch port  - port  x connects to 2960 port.Port x is configured as trunk between 4500 and 2960.

2960 config
vlan 10  
name data 

All user ports are configured under vlan 10 and as access ports.Port x is trunk port connected frpm 2960  to 4500 switch allowing vlan 1 and 10 only.This switch has no default gateway configured.
We connected user PC on 2960 switchports and they were able to get the IP from DHCP server and were able to access the network? My question is how users on 2960 switch are able to access the network without ip default-gateway configured  on 2960 switch?
