    Carefully read that subject. I'm not interested in pxe booting hosts on a linksys. I'm interested in pxe booting the linksys itself. Anyone know of any formware that supports this, or if it is even possible?

    The simple answer is yes. The process is not simple:

    1) Start your PXE server
    2) power off the wrt54g
    3) hold down the reset button
    4) Power up wrt
    5) release the reset button after about 2 seconds

    This proceedure will reflash your wrt54g.

    You can use a linux box with tcpdump to watch port 69 for PXE traffic.
