I'm receving the below error when trying to download IOS to router 3745.

* I gave static IP of same network to PC NIC
* Firewall and Anti-virus turned off.
* I can't even ping router interface after setting this command in ROMMON.
*Using crossover cable , tried several ones.
*Seems like Rommon doesn't have tftpdnld command but dnld.
*System Bootstrap version is 12.2(8r)T2
*Tried on 4 different machines with OS like 2ksr,xp,vista.
