As I understand it, HyperTerminal uses port 23 by default so all it is really is a telnet client. You can do this from a linux shell:

telnet whateveryourroutersipis

That the problem, I have not configured a ip address for my router. I need to connect to them through the console port which connect from my serial port on my laptop to the port on the router to be able to setup the router with an IP address and etc...

Please do not double post the same questions, its against the rules on this site. You can answer this question in the other forum called networking where you also posted this, also where its more suited.
