    I don't think that pdf applies to 2600 series routers but thanks for replying.

    hey thanks, do you know if the only place to obtain cisco ios files is from the cisco site itself or can they be downloaded elsewhere? I ask this because its not possible to obtain ios software with a cisco guest account and thats what i have=(.

    From a Cisco reseller, or another used router for example. Any 'free' download methods are illegal, and should not be discussed in these forums. That's why it is so important to buy used routers with a proper IOS version, because buying the software afterwards is more expensive than the typical used router.

    They are not legally downloadable from the internet lol....

    Your best bet is to find someone that has a Cisco account that can d/l it for ya!

    As far as I'm aware, the IOS is platform dependant, eg you can interchange IOSs between the different 2600 products, but you can't use a 2600 IOS on a 2500 router and you certainly can't use a router IOS on a switch.
