    I am quite new to tomato so forgive the noob talk.

    I flashed the firmware from standard netgear firmware to tomato at ease. when I configured the wifi password and settings it asked me to reboot. when I did the router did not boot I have made a video

    I have tried to TFTP to change the router back to the standard firmware but I can not get a connection please help.
    I have looked at may solutions to put the router into tftp mode but none work

    did you use the init file?
    what do you have now to init or target softwares .trx?

    first set ip network card, gate, mask

    ping -t and see what happens, whether pings are coming and how many.
    switch off and turn on the router and watch the pings

    try to clean nvram with the reset button (method 30-30-30) or wps button - descriptions are on the net with the ddwrt firmware

    try to use the putty terminal
    and log in: root / admin
    or early( user/pass) in the neteger genie if you did not clean the nvram
    if you succeed, please issue:
    mtd-erase2 nvram

    I'd like to know also did you use the initial flash image? I've only had a one time issue when switching between tomato, dd-wrt, oem , and that was my fault but unplugging the power, holding down the reset button then reconnecting power and wait till the yellow light starts to blink then you may release the reset and wait. Make sure to set your static as pomidor1 instructed and watch for ping responses. This usually resets the router in oem or open source it should give functionality. admin admin is the user/pass for tomato. Good luck regards
