2620 FE port issue

I have a 2620 that I'm working with at home. The flash is giving errors, so I ordered another one. In the meantime I used xmodem to load the ios directly to ram which worked. When i did a show running-config the fastethernet port did not show. I can't ping it in rommon mode once a set the IP and other 4 settings.

Does this mean that there is a hardware issue with the port?
Is there another way to verify if the port is defective or not?

    I tried that and it did not show up. I had 11.3 installed since it was a small file. I changed the baud rate to high and installed 12.x and the port shows now.

    Ah, makes sense. :)

    As you've found out, 12.x is the lowest version of IOS that works with a 2620. 11.x doesn't support it at all.

    Did you get your 11.x from another model router?
