Cisco 2516 Router

I seem to be having a problem accessing directories. When I am in privileged mode and type cd system, the operating system does not recognise the "cd" command. How do I change directories?

Also, when I save my running configuration to the startup configuration, switch the router off, then on again I am back to the basic setup, which suggest thr router cannot locate the startup file. Can I get round this problem so that I don't have to go through the same configuration setup each time I turn the router on?

Try to reset your router to factory default setting.

"cd" is the right command to change directories

Surely the issue will be resolved

I have gone through the above but I still cannot execute the commands!! I still receive the Invalid input detected at the cd entry.

have you tried " cd ?"
Also this problem arises due to config not saved in nvram

Also are you sure that such foler "system" exits in that location
Check the name of directory if caps are used while naming the  directory

Hello,
sounds like your IOS image may be corrupt. Buy a new IOS image from your reseller and upgrade your IOS. With a bit of luck, that might resolve your problems.

Hope I helped ;)
