Please make sure you config register is set to x2102.

You shouldn't see any issues if you the correct config register.

I once managed to send a BREAK signal to a 3640 by plugging in a console 
cable.  At the time, it was a pretty key router in the network and sat 
at the rommon> prompt :)

could find.
