Hi

Use tftpdnld to retirve IOS, you have to go to rommon prompt and need to have tftp server to do that. Then follow the instrutions

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} rommon > set --------- to check the parameters

You may have to reload the OS of the router.
i dont suppose you can kick it into romon mode can you? (usually done by hitting the pause break button on boot.)

if you can you should be able to use Xmodem to reload the OS (as long as you have a copy of it located on your computer)

The router starts and finish POST then decompress image file from flash memory then shows this message: System Bootstrap, Version 12.3(8r)T8, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) Technical Support:...


I don't really know what your asking but i guess you want to know why your startup-config doesn't load. What your router is displaying is normal. You need to change the configuration register.
1.Let the router load then if asked select Yes to abandon autoinstall, then select No to skip initial setup. Press return (enter button) when asked.
2. Now type the following at the prompts. (you type the bold stuff press enter after each command)
router>enable
router#conf t
router(config)#config-register 0x2102
router(config)#exit
router#reload
........save changes blah blah blah.. type NO
continue with reload Yes
providing you have a startup-config, the router will now load it on bootup.

Hope this helps

Power light blinks three times then is completely blank for a few seconds then blinks three times and so on in a loop. Will not boot up and no other lights come on.


Sorry I should have been clearer, the PC if fine and up until last night the Router was fine but tried to boot up the Router this morning and the above problem is happening on the router. Tried a reset but still get the problem

Bootup Router and then nothing


Hi,
Your router is in the wrong mode. You need to change this by changing the conf-register to 0x2102

at the rommon prompt type in

config-reg 0x2102

reboot

If there are any errors you can get the correct syntax by typing ? at the rommon prompt the line number will go up on every line.

The way to get into rommon mode is by pressing the break key from Hyperterminal as the router is rebooting. So make sure you don't do this by accident. If you do just reboot by power cycling.

Your Startup Config should be unchanged, but you need to be very careful what you do in rommon mode it is easy to blat stuff.

Any changes you make once you get into the command (enable) mode should be saved by
copy running-config startup-config

Any problems just let me know.

good feed back would be much appreciated.

Cisco 1721 router problem


Does the router boot to rommon mode everytime you turn it on?

There are two reasons why the router could be booting to rommon mode

1. There isn't a valid ios image loaded in flash memory
2. The configuration register is set to a number that ends with '0'

Change the configuration register setting to a number that ends in '2'. (i.e. 0x2402)

You do this with the command: confreg 0x2402 <hit enter key> (in rommon mode)

Reboot the router and it will first search for boot system commands in the startup config, if none found it will boot to the first valid ios image in flash memory.

If there isn't a valid ios image in flash memory, the router will continue to boot to rommon.
