    I just realized that I needed to tftp the new full prefinal5 to my router and it must be done via tftp according to BrainSlayer. But I have no idea what it is or if there is a program that helps you do it.

    i just installed the new pre 5 form the web interface and has been running for 4 days striaght with no problems. i dont understand why you need to tftp it. the web interface will do the job just fine.

    This was at the recommendation of BrainSlayer in the dd-wrt forums. I don't want to have to deal with a bricked router and figured I might learn something new about tftp. Thanks for the help though.

    I used the web interface too! Considering that some of the binaries are slightly over 3mb I dont think this is a good idea as you will brick your router trying to tftp over more than 3mb. It is a restriction of the bootloader.

    RFC 1350 explains it loud and clear. u must learn to rtfm ... there's nothing more clear than an RFC to give you a complete and thorough idea.
