Cisco 2911, console conection

I´m configuring for the first time a 2911 router and I need to connect with a serial RJ-45 cable to router console

I´m using the suggested configuration settings

Speed 9600

Data bits 8

Stop bits 1

Parity none

Flow control none

However I have no success, the connection opens but does nothing, press enter and nothing happens.

I´ve tried with windows hyper terminal and putty. This is the same cable I use to connect to other router without problems,

Am I missing any step?

Thanks!

Hi,

Try different connnection speeds. Router may have non-default speed configuration for console and that mismatches with your connection.

Are you using the Cisco supplied console cable, if not you need to use a rollover cable to make the connection
