One of my 2900XL's switched had a bad IOS. I have tried to upload a new IOS via xmodem but is fails. How can i get a new IOS on my switch?

what error are you getting? The only way to put a new IOS on that switch is Xmodem.

I tried xmodem with both HT and TeraTerm. HT i get the message prompt "error limit exceeded" (i've tried three different IOS)
With TT it says uploading and just hangs. I get CCCC, then nothing??

either your boot setting are set incorrectly and do not match HT, or the switch flash is bad.

I am pretty sure the switch flash is ok.
Whats the best settings for HT?
I have read i may need to change the baud rate?

Yes, you should change it to 115kbps
But, you have to make sure that your router is set to except that speed.
If they are both the same and the flash does not except it, you probably do have bad flash.
However, it could easily be the settings between your HT and the router.

On the switch you can type the command SET BAUD 115200. and that should change it. but you will have to start a new session, because of the changed baud rate, and dont forget to change it back to its defualt once done.
Have a search on Cisco. Their documents are truly helpful :)
