Hello experts,
  I am reconfiguring my Soho 97 Cisco Router, for connecting to a new ADSL provider.

Because I am not a Cisco router expert, I made some research looking command to reconfigure the router.

First thing I have done is to reset the router to factory default settings by deleting the nvram (write erase).
Rebooting after that, the router ask me "Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:". I used this setup utility to configure the Ethernet0 with public IP address and passwords.
At the end of the procedure, I checked using 'show running-config' that configuration was there, than saved the configuration by 'copy running-config startup-config'. The command 'show startup-config' proposed the same as running config.
After reoot the same question appeared "Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:", I wrote 'no' and the router started up, but the running configuration was not there.
The startup-config still contains the correct configuration but it seems the router does not copy startup-configuration to running configuration at the start up.

I have made the same procedure adding at the end 'write memory' but no change at the reboot. Even the password added on setup procedure are not used, because I can make an enable command without password.

Any suggestions to configure permanently my router?

Thanks

Found solution by my self, I had to reset the configuration register at 0x2102.

I had done a password recovery before trying to reconfigure the router and I forgot to reset the correct register address.

Diprajbasu I accept your solution, because in some way your link about password recovery helped me to find the solution.

Grade C, because the answer helped me remember that I have done a password recovery before, but the was not the complete solution.
