    My router is Cisco E3200, installed Tomato.RAF on it
    tomato-E3000USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.9011MIPSR2-RAF-NCC-VLAN-VPN-NOCAT.bin

    as per his recommendations. but now i want to go back to stock firmware and i cannot as, i can only access the WebUi, via wifi and when i connect it to my Lan port, i get defaulted to Windows automatic Ip
    thats 169.254.xxx.xxx

    No matter what i do i am unable to access the router via eth0, and can only thru wifi.

    i tried flashing through tftp, , through wifi, none of which would work.

    i looked at the forum and those solutions will also not work,and router won't also go to management mode.

    I have log files, but cannot see the option to upload them?

    Please help, Please help.

    Set your LAN-card to this, static ip:
    IP: 192.168.1.10
    Mask: 255.255.255.0
    GW: 192.168.1.1

    if you use win7 then try to inactivate/activate to get connected, there is a bug/bad function in tcp/ip stack.

    I tried that, not working, but surprising part is i can access the router via wifi, and my lan eth0 connection defaults of 169.254.xxx.xxx
    2) When ever i update my firmware, with stock firmware, i get invalid header and the flash quits and defaults to tomato.raf firmware.

    I am using Windows 8 Pro, and on my laptop the case is same. Any idea's? Quick reply would be most helpful.

    fixed finally - finally got the firmware to upload over Tomato.Raf by using a hex editor and removing the first 33 byte of the file, with assistance from this link :
    So I stripped off the first 32 bytes of the Linksys firmware after which I was able to revert back to it fine, which one, you may ask.

    Using HxD software for Windows under Windows8.

    So you may close this thread and solved.

    if everything is working correct, then no need to report any logs. I`m glad to hear is all works :)

    One more thing, after flashing your firmware,my downlink speed is now 6Mbps instead of 7.9Mbps on Cisco firmware? i have a 8Mbps service package? any idea why?

    On an 8mbps package its not going to be an 8mbps sustained rate, its going to be around 6.5-7mbps sustained with 8mbps bursts. I haven't ever seen a promised speed package deliver a sustained advertised rate and most of them even note that with a little asterisk and fine print.
