Just scored a Cisco 2514 router off of ebay. Looks like it's shipping with 8 MB main memory and 8 mb Flash. What is the bare minumum for IOS 12.x?
When my teacher opened one of these routers up in class for demonstaration i noted the age of the RAM used, it was SIMM type i believe. I know that for the many cisco devices it is possible to buy standard ram from major manufacturers such as crucial
and install and use em no problem
They don't however list any RAM that I can use for the 2514. Anyone have any success upgrading a 2514 (or 25xx series) with standard NON branded CISCO ram?. I'm not keen on spending $400 on generic ram with a cisco sticker on it!
I also have a Catalyst 2950 Switch on the way, Crucial doesn't list RAM for that either. Anyone have success with upgrading those?
