When you boot the router per the above direction do you get to the ROMMON> prompt or the Router(boot)>prompt?

If you are unable to boot to anything besides rommon then you will need to load your IOS with the this.

What Am I doing wrong here?


PHY did not complete auto-negotation, status = 0x100
.........
ARP: address resolution for 172.16.11.49 timed out.
ARP failed with failure code 1.  TFTP transfer aborted.

TFTP: Operation terminated prematurely.

That message is saying the router is not getting a ARP reply from the tftp server. is there a firewall or anything in between these two that could be blocking tftp communication?

Verify the following:

The TFTP server is running.

The IOS file is in the root directory of the TFTP server.

If possible, connect directly to the PC running the TFTP server with a crossover cable.

If the router has two built-in Ethernet or fast Ethernet interfaces, always use the first interface (usually 0/0). You must use the built-in interface.

All variable commands must be upper case. The variable itself is case sensitive as in the case of a filename, as shown in the following example:

I am connected to the Router via console cable. This will work correct?

that1guy15Commented:
Yes you will need to be connected via the console and then also have another connection running from your tftp server to an interface.

Make sure you have a static Ip set on the tftp server and then the instructions show you how to configure the ip on the router interface. Make sure as i mentioned above to only use the first ethernet interface usually it is either f0/0 or e0/0.
