Cisco 1751 router stuck in rommon

That command does not work.

also I did get tftp to work ( was an issue with static ip and windows firewall)

But I am getting some insane errors, see if you can make sense of it. It is with memory but that does not make sense as the ios's are some of the small ones i am attempting to use.

Insufficient Memory to load image.

Try a different IOS.  Possibly in the 12.3 range.

Ok I tried using the smallest ios possible for this router and it still says the following.. There was an ios on this router at one point in time so something has to work..

Ok I tried using the smallest ios possible for this router and it still says the following..

It's not the size of the IOS file (flash).  It's the size of the required memory for the DRAM.  As I've posted previous to this, try a different IOS version in the 12.3 or even 12.2 range.

Alright I understand, I ordered a 128mb ram stick for the router. Thanks for the help guys, Ill keep you posted once the ram comes in.
