Is a Cisco Flash Memory necessary on router 2821 (can I use another brand)

The cost of the Cisco Flash Memory 128MB is about 5 times the cost of a non Cisco one.

I find it hard to pay, especially since Cisco does not produce them.

Has anybody every tried another brand with success ?


Thank you very much.

Hi Gregory,


Any good brand will work. The thing is that is hard to find the small sizes used on routers, and I'm not 100% sure a bigger size would work.

USB memory is less of a problem and I've used 1GB sticks from different vendors without any problem.


Hope this helps, please rate post if it does
