We changed version to E3 12.1.27b that is the last one available on the web Cisco that this router admits, has only 64Megas RAM, but still giving errors:

I think we have a problem with memory. What do you think? What can I do?
If we have to buy more memory How can I tell how much memory needed to manage all the processes?
