failing 1605?

I havea 1605 thats been rebooting on me lately. I've replaced the power supply but once I saw the info from 'show version' I think the router itself might be bad. Note the software force crash.

This router does debugging level logging to a syslog server, w/ nothing out of the ordinary showing up.

Does anyone have any insight to the error? I'm thinking of replacing the stick of ram in the router. If not I'll have to pitch the entire unit? The version of IOS were running on a number of 1605 and it seems to work just fine so I don't know/think a IOS upgrade will do any good - but I'm not adverse to tring.. Suggestions?

Re: failing 1605?


I checked the bug toolkit, there are lots of bugs in your IOS version, but most of them are due to commands executed or functions performed by the router. Can you say if this behaviour occurs randomly, or when you perform a specific operation ?

Also, can you post the output of the command:

show stacks

after a router failure ?

Re: failing 1605?

I upgraded the version of IOS to 12.2.23 - same problems. Replaced the power supply - worth a go - same result.

I'll have to post the show stacks output sometime later. As we've replaced the router -- we'll need to replace the simm that was in it next.
