Cisco IOS Images

Acer1986
Hi, I have recently purchased a second hand cisco 2620 with IOS Version 12.0(7)T, I'm trying to set up IP Routing over IEEE 802.1Q, but as far as I'm aware,I can only do this with a newer IOS version?
If so, is there anyway of downloading the update without having a service contract?

Thanks for your help

    I have however managed to get an Image from somewhere else, I managed to get version c2600-i-mz.123-9.bin to replace my c2600-i-mz.120-7.t.bin image, I downloaded the image, but now keeps crashing due not enough memory, can I use this image if I upgrade my Ram, if so how much ram will I need?
    Thanks

    I have got my Image from a friend who's got the same router, the only reason I've got the image from a friend, was because even when I offered Cisco money for the image or even access to the download section I was hitting closed doors everywhere, telling me the equipment is no long er supported by cisco, they told me there was no way I can get an Image from them.
    BULL$&#!
    I couldn't believe I can't even buy off them. So much for cisco support!

    So what you will need to do is type sh flash and see how much total memory is available in flash. Then find out if the image that supports what you want to do will fit on your flash. If not, you can buy flash on ebay pretty cheap.

    Just out of courisity, I have been looking for a few hours now, and am having the same problem. I am showing that I have this version c2600-io3-mz.123-13a.bin on my router. When I looked at the FTP site you provided, I didnt see anything to do with the 2620 router. Is there a different location than what you provided? This really puts a crimp in the learning process...

    Thank you in advance for your help...

    If cisco wanted the files out in the wild they would not have password protected them.

    What you're trying to get hold of is Cisco's intellectual property. Of course you can get copies of IOS's on the net but be aware you are essentially stealing software.

    Routers are dirt cheap on ebay - have a look there for one that's got the bin version you want.

    It makes sense that Cisco won't sell old software to punters - why would they want to support EOL stuff when they can get you to buy the new stuff and have much cheaper support costs?
