I wiped the old firmware by doing erase file at boot-up, now i am getting incorrect ethernet interface when i am try to assign an IP to the port. Normally i am upgrading routers like a 1335 in this manner and am thinking that becasue the 1234 is not a router i may have fudged it up good. Any help would be great thanks
Here is a link to a procedure that will wipe out the flash and show you how to do the bootstrap upgrade. You do not have to erase the file system in your case, that is typically done in instances where we suspect the flash is corrupt. Just start with the upgrade process:
?Thank for the response. Normally thats how i upgrade all devices and i dont have an issue, however with this device i am getting an error "Incorrect Ethernet Port" when i try to configure a port. I have tried every ethernet port on the device, the difference is this device has no routing capabilities (NetVanta 1234) and i was thinking thats what may be causing my issue. what do you think?

Can you check and see what your part number is?
From bootstrap do the following:
bootstrap# show version
Boot ROM version 17.03.02.SB
Checksum: D951, built on: Thu Oct 29 07:14:38 2009
Copyright (c) 1999-2009, ADTRAN, Inc.
Platform: NetVanta 1234, Part number 1700594G1
Serial number LBADTN1210AA127
What we are looking for is the part number. The output above is from a first gen.
If your part number is this, then this version you can’t assign an ip via bootstrap and upload via TFTP to the unit, you will have to use xmodem, just change the console speed to 115200 using this command:
bootstrap# console speed 115200
If your part number says 1702594G1 or 1703594G1 then you have the 2nd gen or 3rd gen and you can assign IP and upload via TFTP.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
?I will check that out when i return in the morning. Thanks for all your help you guys have been great!!

Here's another way you can do it from bootstrap mode:
bootstrap#console speed 115200
Then close your terminal session (SecureCRT, Hyperterminal, Putty) and re-open a new one but this time change the speed of your connection from 9600 to 115200 (under Options, Session Options, Serial).
bootstrap#copy xmodem flash name_of_your_firmaware.biz
Now you will see some CCCCCC appears on the screen. Go into the Transfer menu, then select Send Xmodem (if using Secure CRT). In the menu, select send file (if using HyperTerminal).
Once the transfer is done
bootstrap#boot system flash name_of_your_firmaware.biz and hit enter.
Please note that you will need to change your connection speed back to 9600 for it to work. Otherwise, it'll look like nothing will happen.
