    I've got a wrt54gs and I know it sounds silly but I can't get rid of OpenWRT! If I use the Linksys TFTP it says the router is unreachable. If I try to tftp another 3rd party firmware it times out. And yet the damn thing still works. I can telnet in, ping it, etc. Any idea whats goign on?

    Try to wget your firmware to the /tmp area of your router.

    Then using telnet do this :

    mtd -e linux -r write FIRMWAREFILE.trx linux

    Thanks for all the help!

    I used the first method. For anyone who reads this thread later on, if you have a .bin image you need to convert it do .trx . Not just simply change the extension but convert it.
