MC3800 losing startup config

Unanswered Question
Jul 30th, 2007

I have a Router MC3800, that I had to do a password recovery procedure, and after that, I do my configuration, wr mem, check the startup config and the running config, and it looks fine, but when I do a reboot, the router loses all the configuration. help?

I have this problem too.

Hi diastiago,

I know this might be a dumb question, but did you remember to set your configuration register back to the original value (before you went into password recovery mode)? I suppose that would stick you back into ROMMON mode, but I'm not exactly sure what you're looking at...does the router come back to initial configuration mode, or how?

Best of Luck,

Thanks, I forgot to run the configure memory and the config-register 0x2102 commands
