Ok I well just work on the Flash & IOS on theis post and repost each of the other items as I complete them.
I have 32 meg in my router cisco didn't start shipping them with 64 meg until after 2008.
As for the IOS when i bought the router from the company in Seattle they said that they would provide me with a different IOS software if I needed it. I was looking at Cisco 15.4 because it has some features that I would like to access.
I know on the Cisco 2691 you can use a 3725 or 3745 to format the compactflash than use it in the 2691.
But I don't know if i can do the same thing with the flash from a 1801. I have also read that you can use a fdisk to
format the flash but Cisco suggest that you use a router to format the flash before using it in a computer. From what
I have read so far you shouldn't remove the flash on the Cisco 1801 when the power is on so I can't just stick the
new flash in.
This is beside the point but I also wonder about the Boot Rom version on the router but cannot find information
on what boot rom supports what IOS software version. Seems a little strange to me there is not more information
on the 1801.
thank yu for taking the time to reply
