Ok, here's the deal.
I have this 3500 series switch sitting on my desk @ work that I want to use on a project. We're rolling out 100+ new workstations that all need to be reimaged. One of the hardware procurement guys gives me this Cisco 3500 switch to help in that process. It used to be part of the job's infrastructure but the guy who gave it to me has no other info about it. I can't console into it using the console port. When I try doing the password recovery, like how it's explained on Cisco's website, I get a few randon characters in my Terminal Emulator then nothing. My Terminal Emulator is set to 9600 N 8 1 on COM1.
One odd thing I noticed with this switch is when I turn it on - all of the port lights don't light up. Looks only the even numbered ones come on.
Any ideas? Thanks...
