My question is how do I need to do in order to upload IOS image to switch?  The switch has no function without IOS.  So there is no Webview as suppose be on the switch for access to setup, management, upgarde, etc.

Thank you, Steve

Re: LinkSys SRW224G4P no firmware

Hi Sosathea, first, purchasing any Cisco product from a vendor such as ebay voids the warranty of the unit. I would recommend to return it to the buyer.

Second, the switch does not run an IOS. It does have a software image and the device is ran over GUI. You may try to load the firmware off the cisco website through xmodem using hyper terminal. But at this point, it looks like the flash is corrupt and the person who sold that switch to you provided a damaged product.

Hi Tom,

I do understand what you said but I just wanted to know how to do on xmodem to download software image because there is no setup how the xmodem get the file.  I do have software image on my harddrive.  I am run win 7 Pro which connect to console of the switch.  I am also attach the screen shot of xmodem behave.

Thank you,
