Re: OT: cisco question

Ok first I can get an enable prompt, the config is fine it's the ios
(12.1.5) itself that doesn't support the hardware, and yes I have the
config backed up (although it really doesn't matter as it would only
take about two minutes to reconfigure this thing), and now after looking
into the root of the problem it turns out the ios feature pack I was
loading was the one sold to me for this router (I was thinking I could
have made a mistake and put the wrong disk in my cd case), I guess it's
still my fault for not reading through all the docs that came with the
router and the ios feature pack (that's what I get for assuming), unless
the "flash card" is built in the encasement (not ejectable) then no it
doesn't have one (although I'll now be digging through the hardware
guide to see if it does have a flash card), thanks for the idea on the
flash card tighe

i recommend a stong mixture of jack daniels and good cigars.

now, tell me that you have flash cards installed and that you can
not sure if that model has them or not, but i know that my 1600's did.  
did you check the compatability matrix to see if they ios is compatible 
with your models and memory configuration?  can you get to an enabled 
prompt?  i would recommend running erase and then starting from scratch.

you'll lose your configuration but you have it backed up.  right?  
right???  ;)
