The company that I work for gave me an old 2502 router that they didn't need anymore. It has version 11.2 of IOS. I wanted to know if there is a way to obtain a more up to date IOS (eg. 12.2 or later) for it or if anyone has it available without having to pay for it or having a cisco login account to get it.
I have two other 2500 series routers with ver 12.2 of IOS so I know it exists for this model.
Hey, I just thought of this as I was writing this post. Can I use the image stored on one of my other routers and use that to update the IOS on my 2502 router or do I have to use a IOS version specific for the
Thanks for the quick response. As it turns out I don't have the same amount of memory in the 2502 router (only 8MB): The router from which I was trying to copy its image to the 2502 router has 16 MB of memory. Plus, I noticed that while the 2502 router has 16 MB of flash memory ( the same as the 2501) the flash is partitioned (8MB read/write and
8MB read only)
Ques. # 1: Is there a way to un-partition the flash to combine it into 16MB of read/write flash.
Ques. # 2: Can anyone provide any guidance on increasing the RAM in the 2502 router?
I provided the show ver/show flash for both routers below:
