In a previous life I came across similar behavior on a 2500 with the RJ-48
console cable and db-9 or db-25 adaptors.

The solution then was to make sure all the signals made it to/from the router
i.e. RTS, CTS, DSR, DTR, DCD, TXD, RXD and SG.

We had been using only 4 or 6 pin adaptors [forget which] and needed more.

Hope this helps..
