Which command puts my Cisco 1811 running config in the right place for power-up loading?

I have a running and startup configs which are working - but when I power down the router and power back up, it reverts to the original image, asking me to enter initial setup.

Where does my running config need to be copied to in order for the 1811 to use it on power up?

write running-config startup-config

This will copy your current running config, and save it to Flash where it will be loaded next time you boot.

You can usually write this short hand by typing:

wr me

(Short for write memory, does the same thing)

Sorry, that top line of the previous post was supposed to be:

copy running-config startupconfig

Thanks, that was not the issue though, it was the config-register not set to the proper setting. I had to change it from 0x2102 which is factory default, to 0x2142.

Or more specifically:

copy running-config nvram:startup-config

This will copy your current running config to the appropriate filename on your nvram.

How did you get to this point?  

Did you crack it by resetting the password?  

If so did you return the config register to 0x2102 ?
<hostname(config)#config-register 0x2102>

No, I had simply been working on the running config, and had done

copy running-config startup-config

and for good measure, had also copied it to USB flash disk as well.

Upon power cycling, it was losing the config, and I could get it back by copying startup to running again, but the problem was the conf-register, as soon as I performed the instructions in the link below, the router now keeps my config after power cycling.
