As the question says, i need an answer. I cannot find the power button.
When you double click on a device in Packet Tracer, there is a section for the physical parts of the device (I believe the far right tab, but I can't be sure I'm not close to my computer with Packet Tracer). Here you can change and add drives, interfaces by drag and drop. On that same page there is also the power switch.
Physical folder allows for adding new hardware and restarting the device.
- Select device icon (one click)
- Select Physical Folder
- Scroll to the far right for power button
- Toggle power switch off/on to restart device
There is a Power Cycle Devices button at the bottom of main workspace to restart all devices as well.
Power Cycle Devices
The Power Cycle Devices button on the Realtime Bar allows you to power-cycle all of the devices in your network. Pressing it turns all devices off and then turns them back on. Pressing this button will also clear all events if you are running a simulation with the network. The Power Cycle Devices button is also available in Simulation Mode. See the "Simulation Mode" help section for more information.
If you reset the network, you will lose the current running configuration on all routers and switches. Before you click the Power Cycle Devices button, be sure to issue the copy running-config startup-config Cisco IOS command sequence on all routers and switches to retain the current network configuration after the reset.
to power cycle a switch, go down to the realtime bar on the far left and click the circle. When you hover over it, it says "power cycle"
