How do I assign an IP address to a Cisco 2811 router in RonMon mode

My Cisco 2811 router is in ronmon mode and I have tried all the documents to assign an IP address to the router. I am preparing it to download an IOS but I can't ping the Router from my PC.  I am connected to the console port and I have a compact flash in the drive.  How do I assign the IP address to the router in ronmon mode?  We performed the below commands but it didn't work.  I am thinking the router doesn't have an IP address so it won't complete the transfer.

 IP_ADDRESS=IP address of the Ethernet port
IP_SUBNET_MASK=subnet mask of the Ethernet port
DEFAULT_GATEWAY=the default gateway
TFTP_SERVER=the IP of the TFTP server (your local computer)
TFTP_FILE=the file name of the IOS file
tftpdnld
 

Is there a command to simply assign the IP address to the 2811 so my PC can ping the router?

ROMmon and TFTPDNLD is about

ROMmon and TFTPDNLD is about to become obsolete.  Why?  Because with CF/SD media being used for storage by some Cisco routers, you can eject the CF/SD from the slot, insert into a multi-card reader and copy the IOS from your client to the CF/SD card faster than ROMmon and/or TFTPDNLD can do.

If you really want to go down

If you really want to go down the old-fashion road of TFTPDNLD, then ... 

IP_ADDRESS=1.2.3.4
IP_SUBNET_MASK=255.255.255.0
DEFAULT_GATEWAY=1.2.3.1
TFTP_SERVER=1.2.3.1
TFTP_FILE=yipee_ka.yay
