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.

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?

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.
