My 2801 had the flash card go corrupt.  TAC sent me a new flash card.  They were trying to use XMOdem to load the router...isn't there an easier way?  I have the BIN file on my PC.

Appreciate any help.

Yes and no.  "Easy" is relative. :-)

tftpdnld is easier than xmodem, but not as easy as copying it to the card on a working 2800.

Thanks Don.  No matter what I specify for a TFTP timeout, it keeps disconnecting me with a timeout.  I will do what you said with copying it on a working 2800.

Probably a misconfiguration. Verify the address, mask, server address, filename, etc.
