Clearing the EXEC password from a Cisco 675/678 DSL Router

by on Jul.27, 2005, under Networking

To clear Exec Password if it isnt remembered… (Don’t ask…)
[Warning: This will erase your current configuration!]
At password prompt unplug powercord for 3 seconds plug in again.
Just after the alarm light comes on press (CTRL + C) and the router
should go to a special prompt.

Type (es 6) and press enter. The router will indicate that it is erasing
sector 00000006.
When done simply unplug the power and start from beginning.
(Your config is now gone!)
Hope you have a backup…
