I did something stupid. yes it was me, nobody else to blame,I erased the flash memory on my spare 2621 router. I then rebooted the router and now I'm hung in "romomn" mode.
I have tried the two different recovery modes in order to upload a new IOS onto the router. From Cisco "How to Download a Software Image to a Cisco 2600 through TFTP using the tftpdnld Rommom Command".
I am using Solar Winds for my TFTP server and the replacement image (c2600-i-mz.122-34a.bin) is in the TFTP root. I configure all the proper parameters, then run "set" to make sure they are correct. When I invoke the "tftpdnld" command I keep getting the message that the "IP_ADDRESS" is illegal. Note: This was a spare router and not in production and had no config file on it that I know about. Iam hooked up through a concole cable using Hyperterminal. The IP address of my tftp server (laptop) is 192.168.10.155. I set 192.168.10.240 (spare IP address on my network) as the IP address of the router in romon mode, didn't know what else to put in since the router doesn't have an IP address set.
Next I have tried using xmodem to upload the image and keep getting a "time oiut". Yes, I have reset the speed up to 115,200.
I really need to get this router up and running as soon as possible. This weekend we're changing from BGP to RIP (going from 2 T-1 lines to just 1) and I don't want to change the config on our 3640 until I make sure the new configuration is working on the 2621 first. That way, if things go "south" I cna put the 3640 back into place and be back up and running in minutes.
The tftpdnld is very picky about the set variables. Be very sure you have it in exactly being careful about extra spaces and all upper case. You will get a different error if the address is correct but it cannot open a session with the tftp server.
I don't remeber if you must have a space after the = or you must not. I would try it both ways.
