    Nice find Der Kief, but that is really the "slow boat to china" method. Jon's buffalo flasher batch file has a lot of advanced DOS commands in it, and has never missed a single time. I use it with no hub between the PC and radio. I have had the Tftp automated utility time out on me a few times with no hub, but not the batch file. It is still 100% successful (out of a good 40 or so flashes). Options are always good though !

    Jon's buffalo flasher batch file

    Save the codes as .bat file & run together
    with the firmware file.


    @echo off
    echo ===========================================================================
    echo This batch file will upload TOMATO.TRX in the current directory to
    echo during the router's bootup.
    echo * Set your ethernet card's settings to:
    echo      IP:
    echo      Mask:
    echo      Gateway:
    echo * Unplug the router's power cable.
    echo Press Ctrl+C to abort or any other key to continue...
    pause > nul
    echo * Re-plug the router's power cable.
    echo ===============================================================================
    echo Waiting for the router... Press Ctrl+C to abort.
    ping -n 1 -w 50 > nul
    if errorlevel 1 goto PING
    echo tftp -i put tomato.trx
    tftp -i put tomato.trx
    if errorlevel 1 goto PING
    echo ===============================================================================
    echo * WAIT for about 2 minutes while the firmware is being flashed.
    echo * Reset your ethernet card's settings back to DHCP.
    echo * The default router address will be at

    Um... isn't that already included with the firmware download? What's the point in copying and pasting it separately?

    I'm probably missing something.
