erasing start on cisco router

I have a cisco 2651xm router that I have been configuring. I am just trying to get used to cisco commands and learn, so I will config it, then do an "erase start" and reconfig it. Everytime I do an "erase start" and reload the router it comes up with 5 errors:

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/network-confg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/bcsrtr01-confg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/network-confg (Timed out)

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/bcsrtr01.cfg (Timed out)

Then the whole time I am consoled into the router it will periodically flash this error:

%Error opening tftp://255.255.255.255/cisconet.cfg (Timed out)

Which is one of the 5 original errors. It does not flash all 5 original errors. Just the one stated above. I had been putting in two seperat commands to fix the problem. The first: "config-register 0x2102" and the second: do a show flash: and then "boot system flash:(paste the filename that was listed from the show flash:)

This was fixing the problem for a while. Now though, it is still happening and those commands won't fix it. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: erasing start on cisco router

no it won't , this command just keeps the router from trying to pull it initial config off the network and it will load from nvram .
