    I think that should read "supporting up to 64 MB memory maximum each slot."

    TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

    • Processor: 433-MHz Intel Celeron Processor

    • Random access memory: 64 MB or 128 MB of SDRAM

    • Flash memory: 16 MB

    • Cache: 128 KB level 2 at 433 MHz

    • System bus: Single 32-bit, 33-MHz PCI

    To clarify my question: I read here:
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/prod_bulletin0900aecd8023c8d4.html
    that in order to be able to upgrade the memory of a PIX-515E from 64MB
    to 128MB it has to have either Unrestricted or Failover license.
    Is this so or have I misunderstood something?

    Thank you!
    Did you just remove the installed memory and install a regular SD RAM
    yourself? Because there is no option to order 256 MB memory through
    cisco.

    yes

    > Because there is no option to order 256 MB memory through cisco


    of course not. :cool:

    PIX 515 (or 515E in your case ) is the (more or less) Intel pentium
    based PC. It supports up to 256M of RAM.

    Memory module has to have low density chips. In other words - you need
    two PC-133 non-ECC 8-chip 128MB modules
