2600 Troubleshooring?

Hi folks. I've got my hands on a 2600 router (found in an old cupboard at
work - honest!) that I'd like to get working. Any guides out there? I've
done a bit of googling, but have not found anything. The exact problem is
that nothing happens on power up - no bootstrap message or anything. I have
a couple of known good 2501s and they are fine, so that's the lead and PC
proven (using HyperTerminal Private). I've opened this 2600 up and both
memory simms are present. It has no interface cards installed. Any ideas?
Note that I don't know if it ever worked or not, so it could be faulty.

Thanks,

PM

If you can find an old 'breakout box," look for signaling on the router's Tx
Data leads. If you see that 'something' is
leaving the router, then try every possible baud rate hyperterminal offers
with each possible parity setting,
until eventually your hyperterminal understands what it
is receiving.

Hi - good thinking. I have one of those at work - will try tomorrow.

Thanks indeed,
