Cisco 2501 Memory Upgrade

Hello,

I need information on how to go about upgrading memory on our Cisco 2501. I would like to upgrade the memory to the full 16MB's allowed.

What is the general cost of the memory? I have seen a wide range of acceptable memory ranging from $50 to $800 for 16MB.

INFO ON ROUTER BELOW:

Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software

IOS (tm) 3000 Software (IGS-I-L), Version 11.0(16), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

cisco 2500 (68030) processor (revision N) with 2048K/2048K bytes of memory.

Processor board ID 08899857, with hardware revision 00000000

Bridging software.

X.25 software, Version 2.0, NET2, BFE and GOSIP compliant.

1 Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 interface.

2 Serial network interfaces.

32K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.

8192K bytes of processor board System flash (Read ONLY)

Thanks for your help :)

Re: Cisco 2501 Memory Upgrade

If you look at the DRAM Layout it has only one bank,

which means you have to remove the 4MB on board an

replace it with the MEM-1X16D.

If you have to upgrade the Flash as well, there are

8MB on board. The second Flash slot is empty and you

can install an additional 8MB Flash memory MEM-1X8F.

Thats how i figure this out from the Layout.

The differnce in price happens if you pay cisco mem,

or 3RD party product.
