Yes I found that page and carried out the instructions, but still no joy. Here is an update on my learning process:
-I now know that the rommon prompt (which I got to using Ctrl-Break from within hyperterm on window XP connected to the console) is the system that causes the IOS system to boot. When I changed the confreg parameter from the rommon prompt, I neglected to note what my current confreg setting was, so I cant change it back (help here please). At the moment, the confreg setting is 0x142. What should it be to get this router back to the state where I started with it?
-In the flash filespace, I have a number of files, all dated Nov 22 of this year, which Im assuming are what I need to get this back and going the way it was when I first poweed it up. These files are:
At the moment when I power-off and power-on the router, Im prompted with the following question:
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog [yes/no]. I anwser no. Im imagining that I need to change the rommon confreg setting to aviod this message and continue with the boot process.
That seems to have done at least the boot part. Now when I re-power the router, I am no longer prompted for configuration and it starts up seemingly ok.
Earlier (after changing the confreg setting and restarting), I issued a 'copy running-config startup-config). I believe that this overwrote all of the settings that I had made since first connecting the router (since I had that option enabled in SDM).
Do I now need to re-instate the config with which the router shipped?
Is this configuration in the file sdmconfig-1811-1812.cfg?
What do I need to do to restore this configuration to the router, so that I can be back a square one?
