3640 No IOS image

I have a Cisco 3640. I was trying to upgrade the image. Is there a way to load the new ios image from rommon? This router has no ip configs. How do you configure ip address, subnet, and default gateway? so i can load from a tftp server.

Re: 3640 No IOS image

Which is better xmodem or tftpdnld?

Re: 3640 No IOS image

If tftpdnld is available then that is usually faster than xmodem. But it is not always available whereas xmodem usually is.

Re: 3640 No IOS image

As Jon notes, tftp is usually (much) faster, but if you do have to load via console port, some tricks:

Increase port speed to max (between devices)

Use most efficient file transfer protocol (supported between devices), e.g. xmodem-1k, y-modem, z-modem

Load smallest IOS image you can find to boot box, then load intended image via normal tftp or ftp.

TFTPDNLD and 3640? I don't think 3640 supports TFTPDNLD (if I'm not mistaken).

You can increase the xmodem speed if you follow the second link I posted earlier. Here it is again:
