Hi all,

Sorry if this is the wrong area.

I cant get past the first hurdle, setting a hostname for the router!

I have a 837 router with Version 12.3(2)XC2 IOS.

But it doesn't recognise the 'hostname' command.

Can anyone help please?

Hi all,

Thanks for your advise, very much appreciated!

I just had to reload the ios and it worked just fine.

Don't ask me why, I don't have a clue myself, it just worked, thank you all.
