    tftp -i PUT name.bin

    that's the command i'm putting in, but it always comes back saying "A Timeout Occured"
    What is the correct command to use on a Windows XP machine.

    That's the right command. Can you ping the router? Have you tried one of the Linksys tftp utilities?

    I can ping the router.
    I've also tried Linksys's TFTP utility without success.

    Something else to try. I was just flashing a WRT54GS and ran into the same issue. I could ping it, it'd hand out an IP, the power LED was steady.....but I couldn't access the GUI or get tftp to work....I got the time out like you described. What fixed it for me was this. I opened a command prompt and did an ip release and renew. Type, without the quotes, "ipconfig /release" and wait until it's done. You'll get several lines with the values all zero. Next type "ipconfig /renew" and wait. You'll get your system's IP, gateway, etc. I was then able to access the GUI and successfully tftp a new firmware in. Hope that helps. Good luck.
