    My friend just gave me a bricked 54gs v7.2 and I can ping it. I put my nic on the same network etc. etc. The tftp.exe utility i downloaded just cant seem to connect and load the bin... I had it set to 10 attemps also. Is there another method? Im kinda a noob with all this and i wanna use this router as a repeater for the third floor of my place and want to install tomato on it just like the one i have on my first floor.:cool:

    Thank you all kindly,

    No chance with Tomato, your only choice of 3rd party is dd-wrt, but you need to remove the vxworks OS and bootloader. Suggest you seek advice over on their forums, the thread re "Linksys WRT54 Gv8/GSv7 flashing instructions" is only 76 pages long...
