I would think a router console can support 8-bit but I'm not sure, and maybe something need to be configured. Is this a serial console? Can you try plain old telnet instead, with -8 option?

Doing "telnet -8" and pasting '©' works.

However, even after doing "telnet -8 localhost 2000" (to connect to
router console), I can't paste '©' .

I am using Dynamips to simulate a Cisco router.
