I have 256Mb ram (two sticks of 128Mb) in this router, but when it starts up the console says:
System Bootstrap, Version 12.2(7r) [cmong 7r], RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

*** Warning during size main memory test,
expected bus error does not occur above 128 mb of main memory
C2600 platform with 131072 Kbytes of main memory.
I swapped some good tested memory from another 2651xm (2 x 128Mb sticks) router but I still got the above error. Does this mean the board is faulty?
if I only use one stick of 128mb it boots fine with no errors, and I can use either slot, but it's when both slots are used I get the error. Swapping the sticks around made no difference. Is there any kind of major reset one can do of the mainboard?
"The second announcement is a new internal ROMmon on all Cisco 2600XM Series multiservice routers. This new ROMmon simply provides the "future ability" to upgrade the Cisco 2600XM Series to 256-MB DRAM. Currently the maximum memory used by Cisco IOSÂ® Software is 128 MB. Some future Cisco IOS Software releases will use more than 128 MB of memory and will require this new ROMmon support to provide access to memory between 128 MB and 256 MB. "
