Is it possible to virtualize a router for instance. i.e. take the entire o/s from a router and put it in like vmware image or something along them lines.
Did you try google?

yeah sorry i never looked at google before, but i had a look just there.
I noticed there is virtual routers for cisco, which i have used in packet tracer but what i was really looking for was an app for taking the entire memory from lets say if you are in the uk a BTHomehub Router and copying it into vm.
i just wanted to know if it was possible.
Well how do you want to virtualize a router with 24 or more physical ports?
I can't plug any cables into a virtual router.
Thanks for the reply, im not interested in actually using a virtual router i was just wondering if its possbile.
But im sure if you have a virtual cable you could possbily plug it into a virtual router
Basically the answer is yes. But iirc for cisco images you need to have the coresponding hardware to be legally allowed to use the image with an emulator.
ok thanks for the reply. its not really specifically for cisco, i wonder if its the same legal stance with any other router.
i will keep looking anyway.
Thanks Again for the reply
I was just thinking but
What if one pc was connected to router1 , and you set up another router2 with the same channel and same ssid, then you de-authenticated pc,
would the pc connect back to router1 or straight to the fake one.
If pc would connect straight back to router1, WHY would that happen would it be based on mac address or something else?
If i were to keep the fake router open no authentication, and if the pc would connect to the fake router, would the pc still try the handshake?
I know this part has nothing to do with the first post just dont see the point opening another post
Thanks in advance
You need a legitimate Cisco IOS image.
