Flash and DRAM help

Answered Question

I need to upgrade my IOS to 12.4(11)XW to support my HWIC-1ce1t1-pri card and PVDM2 module. I have a 2811 router that I just bought last December and I was told it was going to have 256MB DRAM and 64MB Flash (which is what is required to run the IOS I need to upgrade to). When I looked at the router though it look like I don't actually have enough.

Do I actually have enough for the new IOS?

What you have posted does show that the router has 256 MB of memory and 64 MB of flash. I am not clear what the requirements of your new image are. But you currently have 38027264 available in flash and you could free up 15678960 if you delete the existing image. I can not imaging an image for which this would not be enough flash.


What is it that makes you think that you may not have enough?
