Clearing Passwords and finding the Break Sequence

Based on the info at this link, the break sequence for Terra Term is Alt-b. Is that what you are invoking when you attempt your boot up sequence on the router?

Re: Clearing Passwords and finding the Break Sequence

Every time I get the return command and then it boots the old company image on the router.

Check this command, I mean with which IOS image is said to bootup.
