Does a Cisco router NEED the .bin extension at the end of the IOS name to boot to it after loading from a TFTP Server?  I have heard conflicting things on this.  In other words, if I go and change the IOS name to something totally different, with no extension, will it work?

I agree with Lrmoore. Whenever I upgrade the router I just rename the image to routermodel-iosversion and tftp it into the router like that. I don't use extensions either.
