Re: rommon-mode issue

A couple of questions for you. Where you connected directy to the router with a crossover cable, or where you going through a switch?

1. did you give the ethernet interface and ip address?

2. specify subnet mask?

3. specify a gateway? You would think that this one would not matter. But I have had rom uploads fail because of it.

4. the PHY did not complete auto-negotation appears to referr to ether an ip address from dhcp, or more likly the connection speed and duplex. If connecting through a switch, try a crossover cable instead. or hard code the ethernet port if you can in rom mode.

Re: rommon-mode issue

Hello,

The ROMmon TFTP transfer works on the first LAN port only (tftpdnld). For more information review the following link:

Hope this helps.

Regards,

James
