sudevank is right. you can use minicom -s to connect using console to your router.

#minicom -s

from there you select Serial 0 or Serial 1 e.g. /dev/ttyS0 or /dev/ttyS1 then set system to 9600 8 N 1 and save configuration. after that you can hangup by press
CTRL+Z,H (control + z and release key after that h).

# minicom

to access console

thats all
