Hi!


I bought a refurbished router (3640- 64MB/16MB flash) for my home lab in ebay. During booting process I got this message regarding memory as follows:


"If any of the above Memory Requirements are UNKNOWN, you may be using an unsupported configuration or there is a software problem and system operation may be compromised. Rounded IOMEM up to: 4MB. Using 6 persent iomem. [4MB/64MB]."


Is there any problem with the memory? I want to make it sure before to call the vendor.


Thank you for your reply.


Best regards

I do not see anything in what you posted that indicates that there is any problem. The first part of the message

"If any of the above Memory Requirements are UNKNOWN..." is a standard message that always prints out during the boot process for this platform. And then it indicates that it will be using 4 MB out of 64 MB for IO memory. This is quite normal during the boot process.
