Can I upgrade to 2GB RAM in ASA5510?

Hi All,

I am having ASA5510 firewall which has 1GB RAM currently. I want to upgrade to 2GB. When I opened the box, I can see only 1 slot to insert the RAM. I searched in Cisco website and I got to know that I need to use 2 x 1 GB RAM. So, I need to have 2 slots to do that. But,  I am having only 1 slot in the box.

Please suggest me whether I can upgrade to 2 GB or not. If possible, how to achieve that?

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Andrew,

So, the only way is that I need to purchase a ASA5520 in order to have 2 GB RAM?
