I have an 1841 Router and need to upgrade to a NEW IOS | Due to size limitations on the existing 32mb CF card, I Cannot.

I have a new 128mb CF card |

How can I get it formatted and get the Existing IOS (or new IOS) and config onto the new CF Card.

Put the CF-card into your computer with a CF card-reader and configure it as FAT32 and it will work. You can also put your old card in your computer and copy the existing files to harddisk before copiing them back to the new card.

I see | other than the IOS bin file, is there anything else that I need?

Seems that the router stores the configuration outside of the CF, NVRAM I suppose.

thanks
