It seems I need some updated software for two used Cisco routers we got to have as backups in case clients had problems.
I've read elsewhere that Cisco refuses to update routers that are not still with the original owners.

Can you shed enlightenment on how to get the newer software for these routers so they can be meaningful loaners?
One is a 2514 with 11.2(14) (may not be a supported configuration...)
One is a 1720 with 12.1(3).  I'm trying to get this one to make use of a 1ENET card.
