Load the U-Boot prompt. This can be done by hitting any key right after the appearance of the U-Boot banner:

U-Boot 1.1.2 (Feb 25 2006 - 21:16:55)

Board: Netgear GSM7248
DRAM:  64 MB
FLASH:  8.5 MB
Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0 

The variables for the switch should look like something below:

=> printenv
flashargs=setenv bootargs root=/dev/ram console=ttyS0,9600 mem=62M mac0=$(fp_card_base_mac) serialnum=$(fp_sn) quiet
silent=1
bootcmd=run flashargs; bootm ff000000
bootdelay=3
baudrate=9600
initrd_high=03E00000
fp_num_mac_addrs=4
fp_model=Netgear GSM7248
fp_mfgr=bc00
fp_pn=GSM7248
fp_fru=GSM7248
fp_desc=Netgear GSM7248
fp_maint=1
fp_who=LVL7 Support
fp_type=Netgear GSM7248stdin=serial
fp_card_base_mac=0x00:0x1E:0x2A:0x3B:0x9E:0xC5
fp_sn=1DU3823J00054
stdin=serial
stdout=serial
stderr=serial

The flashargs variable for bootcmd load the firmware with the current settings, including the password. You want to start the firmware without these settings so you can get to the boot menu. To do this, run the bootm command directly:

=> bootm ff000000

This loads just the firmware of the switch. Let the startup process run its course. Choose 2 when prompted for the startup mode:

Select startup mode.  If no selection is made within 3 seconds,
the GSM7248 Application will start automatically...

1 - Start GSM7248 Application
2 - Display Utility Menu
Select (1, 2): 2

This will present you with the familiar boot menu:

GSM7248 Startup Rev: 3.3
