I have a TASMAN 1004 router which I am trying to setup with two active WAN ports.  I purchased it off ebay and was told that it was licensed for two WAN ports, but when I boot it up I receive the following error:   Can someone please tell me how to correct this or is the unit unsalvageable?

    IC Recovery
    When attempting to boot the system, if the IC.Z file is not available in IC flash memory, the
    system will appear to be in a hung state.
    The interface card will load IC.Z from the motherboard (NCM) flash memory automatically.
    This could take up to five minutes depending on the Tasman model.
    NOTE: When this happens, do not turn the system power off!
    When the system appears to be in a hung state, the interface card is loading the IC.Z file
    directly into IC RAM. An attempt is then made to write the IC.Z file to IC flash from IC RAM
    to replace the corrupted/missing file.
    If it takes a long time to load the IC.Z file (described above), do the following after the boot
    process completes:
    1 Verify that the IC.Z file was copied to the IC card.
    Tasman-1400> file ls IC 1 (slot number 1 or 2)
    The following information is displayed:
    CONTENTS OF /flash:
    2 Re-establish the location from which the system initiates the boot process.
    Tasman-1400/configure> bootIC LOCAL 1 (slot number 1 or 2)

    I checked the Flash as you suggested and there was a T1000.Z file already there that it would attempt to boot from.  I ran the boot command but am still having the same problem.  What is the next step?
