On my all-mighty home router (7507/RSP2) I have 64 _megs_ of flash that cost me a mere 20 bucks at Fry's and 128 megs of RAM that cost me $0 because I scrounged them from an old server. The RSP2 does not support el-cheapo digital camera flash? That's true, it's not in the list of approved memory. Nevertheless :-D cisco7507#sh diagbus Slot 2: EEPROM format version 1 Route/Switch Processor 2, HW rev 1.02, board revision F0 Flags: cisco 7000 board; 7500 compatible cisco7507#sh ver cisco RSP2 (R4700) processor with 131072K/2072K bytes of memory. R4700 CPU at 100Mhz, Implementation 33, Rev 1.0 64000K bytes of ATA PCMCIA card at slot 0 (Sector size 512 bytes). In modern environments, I have to admit that 2500s are a though call but I will also point out that a 2600 goes for near-to-nothing on eBay, and even when you re-license IOS and upgrade it still costs near-to-nothing. For the enjoyment of Nanog readers, the following links display what you should _not_ do if you don't want to void the warranty on your brand new Cisco 3102 (it was before I decided to run 12.2(T) on it, more soldering has happened since).

It was new when I bought it!
