Where to purchase the 2501 Processor Board?

I have an old 2501 router where the Processor mainboard went bad.  Is there a place I can purchase just the Processor mainboard and not an entire router?

Thanks

I hate to say it, but unless you can find someone besides Cisco to repair your bad board the best bet would be to buy a whole router on someplace like E Bay. 2501’s go pretty cheep now days because every one thinks they a fast Ethernet interface to connect to their wide area link even though it’s rarely over two megs, but it makes Cisco happy.

What would it cost for Cisco to repair this board or swap it out?  You used to be able to call support but there is no documentation on how to do it anymore?

Unfortunately I have to agree with Dr-IP - you are out of luck on this.  
The processor board is not a spare part item and Cisco Systems is adamant that the module contains no user-serviceable parts (except for the power supply).

Cisco announced an "End-of-Sale" on that product some time ago and it does not appear they are willing to offer any real support whatsoever.
See Product Bulletin No. 1564

Sorry.

You may still have an oppertunity for repairs. Contact Cisco via thier webpage.

As to the disposition of this Q - AFAIC the proposal is sound.
