I have tried that one, but it will not load and I have to revert to the current image in ROM monitor mode.

Ah, ok. That makes sense, will another 16 MB of flash do the trick or do I need more?

Commented:
32MB is the required amount of Flash to support that image and probably the max that router supports.

Take a look at this doc.  Looks like you'll also need to get a new boot ROM for the router.

Sure thing.  You may want to evaluate the cost of the flash memory and boot ROM chip versus buy a 2621XM router off eBay :)
