When I make configuration changes to the running config, i save them by going to the router# "copy running-config startup-config"  After I finish this I go to the startup config and view it.  I can see the changes that I made.  To test that it saves the changes I reboot and all the changes that I made are gone and its asking me if I want to start the setup mode as if it had never been configured at all.

Summary: WHere do I save the startup-config file to so that I can save my changes when I reboot?

THanks

Your configuration register is wrong.

You can fix it under config mode by entering the following: config-register 0x2102

Do a 'show version' and make sure that your configuration register is set to 0x2102.

If it isn't - enable - configure terminal - config-register 0x2102
