I have a Cisco 837 with an ADSL WIC. The previous owner had wiped the config when they had done with it.
When the router boots up it prompts the 'Would you like to enter the initial config?' wizard. I choose no to this, and then proceed to configure the router from the CLI.
Then i do copy running-config startup-config to save the settings.
However, after doing a reload or a powercycle, the router returns to the 'Would you like to enter the initial config?' dialog.
I can go to the CLI and do 'show startup-config', and my settings are shown on the screen.
Why is the router not loading the startup-config?
The IOS version is 12.3, and the config register is set to 0x2142.
