Re: [HELP] Cisco 831 Router not saving config?

Hello all -

I apparently took the 'long way' around to fixing this issue while waiting for any advice from the forum. However, I do want to thank all of you for replying and providing your suggestions / advice.

The 'long way' that I took was:

1 - Getting into the ROM monitor and changing the confreg to 0x2101.

2 - Then I got a configuration summary by entering 'confreg' at the rommon> prompt - I also made changes in this area, particularly the boot characteristics for booting the system.

3 - I restarted the router, entered config t mode and loaded a basic configuration I found on this forum.

4 - I started SDM Express (again) but this time I got the "welcome to your router" splash screen that I haven't seen before - at this point I knew things had gotten a lot better.

So I believe I'm on my way - Thank you all so much! Special thanks to 'elnino' who mentioned the config register and got me thinking and also to 'tubbynet' who responded with the 'direct' fix!
