i think you have service config in your configuration file
log in to youe router as enable
#config terminal
#no service config

this shoud typically set it right . To know more detail post your config file

Hi sagar24,
Your router is looking for configuration files on a tftp server. It makes a tftp broadcast to find the files named cisconet.cfg, router-confg and ciscortr.cfg. These files have been moved or deleted from your tftp server.

anupnellip is probably right that this is a "delivery" setting to enable remote configuration from a service provider.

I'm sure anupnellip has a more certain answer then me but if I'm not uncorrect service config sets the router to look for configuration files on a tftp server and no service config disables the same.

You r right MAB
.
service config enables autoloading of configuration files from a network tftp server
