    When you get it working, let me know if it crashes about every 10 min, as is what happens for me.

    yeah i've got it going now, i had to use my pc to connect to it, i think i didn't like the adapter i was using to plug into my laptop, which is normally fine,

    And yeah is does crash evry once in a while.

    i've got a different problem now.

    i've got the 2600 that's in rommon connected to the tftp server using an ethernet into ethernet 0 i've set some settings on rommon but not getting anywhere, i've got all the addresses on the same segment have a look.


    rommon 23 > set
    PS1=rommon ! >
    RET_2_RTS=
    BSI=0
    RET_2_RCALTS=0
    ip_subnet_mask=255.255.224.0
    tftp_server=172.16.96.22
    tftp_file=c2600-io3-mz.123-3.bin
    0=4
    tftp_checksum=0
    ethernet_0=172.16.96.31
    default_gateway=172.16.96.10
    ?=0
    ip_address=172.16.96.30

    i don't quite get how it's gonna know where to get the image and normally the roter wouldn't have an ip it would just be the interfaces, right?
    It's not connected to the default gateway ethier i've tried leaving that blank, because there is only one ethernet port on these routers i can't connected it to it's default gateway and have the gateway connected to the server, all confusing anyone with a brain out there, be my guest

    I've never configured specific interfaces in rommon mode, but it may be possible (anyone?).

    Here's how I normally do it:

    1. Connect your PC's NIC card to the first FA port on your router (cross over cable needed here).
    2. Set an IP on your PC (example: 192.168.100.1 255.255.255.0).
    3. Set an IP on the router (example: 192.168.100.2 255.255.255.0).
    4. Set your default gateway on your PC to router's IP (192.168.100.2 255.255.255.0)
    5. Set your default gateway on your router to you're PC's IP (192.168.100.1 255.255.255.0)
    6. Fire up your TFTP server on the PC and go to town.

    Alternately, in step 1 you can connect them both to a switch or hub using two straight through cables. Make sure you know which cable types are used where for CCNA.

    I'd like to suggest SecureCRT for configuring a router from a windows machine - works great.
