I have launched Cisco Tftp software when doing this...i am not sure if you are supposed to have this launched but i luanched it anyways. I have ping the router from my Pc and ping the Pc from my router and was successfull. Not sure what is going on. This is what i get when i type SHO MEM

Try to copy the existing flash image to your tftp server for two reasons: verifying that your tftp server works, and backup in case you need to go back to the old image.

I guess you have 4 MB ram and 8 MB flash, not the opposite as you have stated. This should be sufficient according to CCO.

Your new image has a size of 5721012 bytes, which means you don't have room for both images in the flash, therefore you need to delete and squeeze the old image.
