    Hopefully this is the right forum for this question. I have a Catalyst 2900 Switch that I am playing around with--learning the Cisco system. I tried to sign on and it will not accept the password. I need the password recovery sequence for this type of switch. I have the recovery for Cisco routers 25XX & 16XX but they do not work. Thanks for any help.

    have you tried just hitting enter? Or another original one - password or password1??? Some people just aren't very original when it comes to passwords. We have a couple Cisco switches and some of them use these. Just a thought.

    Power down the switch completely, then press the "mode" button on the front, keep it pressed in & turn the switch on. I think this brings you back to setup mode.

    On some 2900s there is also a tiny pinhole on the back which is a reset button.
