Inherited a network that has zero documentation associated with it. We just replaced our T1 internet connection carrier and they brought in their own router so now I have Cisco 1605R unused. I would like to access the router see what the settings were on this router then I would like to reset the router to the factory defaults.
My issue is how to gain access to this information. I see the console port on the back to which a cable with a rolled pinout is to be attached for access. I know to use hyperterminal to access the unit bu tI do not know what the IP address is of the unit. I tried placing it back on the network and doing a scan of the network to see what IP available IP addresses were found or not found but that was fruitless.
What are the options that I have in this regard?
