  • Cisco 877

    Hi All.

    I am new to cisco kit, but have been able to get a 877 adsl router up and running. We could be taking on a contract where some cisco knowledge would be useful so I want to play with the router I have got.

    What I would like to do is update the firmware on both the router and adsl chip.

    I would really like to download the latest version from somewhere so I can try upgrades etc. I need thought to have a Cisco Technical Support Services Agreement. This first of all sounds expensive, but I cant find how you can do it or not. Just find talk to a reseller etc. This router is one we aquired through upgrading existing kit.

    Is there anywhere that you can download the firmware from rather than Cisco, or is that a no no.

    What I would like is c870-advsecurityk9-mz.151-1.T.bin

    Cheers,
    Rich.

    Support contracts arent that expensive and well worth it as you get support from TAC if need be and also get access to downloads etc for your device. IOS is licensed just like any other software so yes it is illegal to download or install unauthorized software on your device.

      Cool.

      Where do I go though to look at getting one. I have gone through the 'resellers' websites, but there is no sign of anything, or if there is, they call it something completely different.

      Thanks.

        Have you purchased any other cisco equipment? If so from who? You can always go to the reseller you purchased from or you can contact cisco directly and they will be able to tell you resellers in your area.

          No, this was an aquisition and nover bought proper cisco stuff before.

          Would it be the smartnet that I would be looking at?

          If so, its about 30-40ish which is very reasonable.

            Sorry, meant to say,

            there are two options.

            SmartNet

            Or

            SoftwareUpdatesOnly.

            Both are similar costs.

            With Smartnet should I get access to updates too?

            Sorry for the stupid questions, but cisco confuses me!

            Cheers.

                Great.

                You are being so patient, thanks.

                Just one more question.

                My router is a 877, how can I find out whether it should be K9, AnnexM etc?

                The main firmware is 12.4(15)T7

                Currently running C870-advsecurityk9.mz.124.15.t7.bin

                Do you know which one I should go for?

                I cant see anything on the label that goes further than saying its a 877.


                Thanks.

                  It really depends on what functionality you want in the IOS.

                  C870-advsecurityk9.mz.124.15.t7.bin is the advanced security image which probably supports CBAC and some other advanced features. When you get your smartnet they will let you creat a login for the cisco site. Once you have it you can browse the feature navigator for you particular device and see what options are available in each IOS version.

                  Also it also depends on how much ram and flash the device has as some IOS require more flash/ram .
