Password Recovery Procedure for Cisco 2600 and 2800 Series Routers

If you buy used Cisco device for your Cisco home lab, your used router/switch configuration most likely already erased to default configuration by the reseller. But what if you got a router/switch with password in it, or you forgot the password you gave to the device.

Cisco devices have a password recovery procedure that you can use to overcome this problem, some devices might have different procedure for password recovery.

The steps that I'm showing here is for Cisco 2600 and 2800 series routers, but most routers have the common steps to follow.
Some Cisco switches series have a button on the chassis that you must press for password recovery.
