Go to Cisco.com download section (requires a CCO login).

Download the file to a server under a user home directory.

Configure the router with an ftp username and ftp password.

FTP the file from the server to the flash (check to see that you have sufficient total space for the new image and sufficient remaining space -- otherwise the old image will be erased first.

If your flash holds two images,  you will need a 'boot system' statement in your configuration so that the new IOS gets loaded.

Cisco has historically offered free IOS upgrades when there is a security vulnerability associated with a particular IOS.  You may not need a software contract to download an updated image.  Cisco's TAC should be able to help you with this.

Minimum DRAM is 96
Minimum flash is 32

It's there along with an newer release -- 12.4(17a):

 c1700-advipservicesk9-mz.124-17a.bin        96        32        14-NOV-2007

Login to www.cisco.com.  Go to downloads -> IOS -> 12.4 -> 1721 -> advanced ip services

Downloading IOS requires a CCO login.

If you do not have CCO login and your IOS is vulnerable, TAC may get you the image you need.

Standard IOS upgrades requires a SmartNet [software] contract.

Contact Cisco TAC and see what they say.
