Whenever I reboot a 2940 I have a problem with the console speed resetting to 115200. A show run reveals:
line con 0
When I change the speed to 9600 and copy run start it shows this in the startup:
line con 0
However, upon reboot it goes right back to 115200.
Any ideas on why this might be occurring?
Complete the below steps in order to speed up the Xmodem recovery:
Set the baud rate to 115200 on the switch: prompt.
switch#set BAUD 115200
!−−− The screen goes blank after you enter this command.
1. Under COM PORT properties, select the bits per second as 115200. The switch: prompt is
2. Start the Xmodem recovery.
3. After the Xmodem recovery, set the BAUD rate back to 9600.
Hope this helpes you...

This is a known issue on this platform and is due to hardware fault.You can try the following and see if it works for you:
Break the switch into rommon and set the BAUD rate there.
rommon> set BAUD 9600
If this does not work, only resolution to this problem is hardware replacement.

Ok, thanks I've already tried to set the baud rate in ROMMON but i get a vb:: permission denied error. I've never seen that one either. I'll just get a replacement. Thanks for all the replies.
