Resetting and adding RAM to a Cisco 806 Router

Unanswered Question
Sep 26th, 2010

Hello.

I have followed the Cisco guide on resetting a Cisco Router running IOS. everything was fine. i just don't know if there's anything of the old configuration left. the router used to be a ISP router accompanying a broadband subscription from (DK).

I have also added some old HP EDO RAM i had laying around. 8 Meg.

This is the output from the router booting up, plus a show version command:

Thanks

Hello.

According to your post, your router has 16MB of DRAM, 8MB of Flash 2MB of which are allocated to Web Flash to run the Web configuration tool and runs the c806-y6-mz.122-8.T10.bin (IP) operating system. There's no leftovers from the old configuration.

Hope this helps.

It recognizes 16. If the 8 you added was in addition to that, it is

not recognizing it, but if it had 8 and you added 8 then all is well.

In order to answer this please try shutting down the router, remove the HP memory chip and repost the output of the sh ver command once the router goes to the router> prompt.

Additionally, you forgot to change the configuration register back to 0x2102. It's left to 0x2142. Follow the guideline from the configuration guide and change this too.
