IOS (tm) C2600 Software (C2600-I-M), Version 12.3(13), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)
System Bootstrap, Version 12.2(8r) [cmong 8r], RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Boot ROM says there's 262144 Kbytes of memory.

show version reports:

cisco 2611XM (MPC860P) processor (revision 0x100) with 126976K/4096K bytes of memory.

Why does IOS not report the full 256Kb of RAM?
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

    I believe it takes a specific ROM in order for all 256mb RAM to be recognized in the 2600xm series routers.

    Not meaning to be demeaning but did you do a memory upgrade yourself? Perhaps with 2 x 128mb sticks? Did you verify both are good (booted with one, then booted with the other)? Sometimes you get bad memory and the device can't pick it up correctly.
