Is it possible?
Tftp didn't work for me.
Try the following steps:
1. Enable boot_wait. With boot_wait your router will always use the default IP address and will wait about 3 seconds after power up and *before* boot (a little chance to upload firmware).
Log in to the router (telnet 192.168.1.1) and type in the following commands:
nvram set boot_wait=on
(thanks to openwrt docs)
2. Download .exe version of the newest firmware from linksys.com. Run it, and press "Next" twice (welcome screen -> Next -> IP screen -> Next). After two other screens the software will try to upload the firmware. You will see an error message, but DON'T WORRY, don't close the window. Power off the router, wait 4-5 secs, and power on. Right after power on click the Retry button. Voila...
The original firmware is on your router.
