    I've followed very carefully the instructions in the Readme for Tomato 1.07 for installing on Buffalo WHR-G54S. Whatever I do I get "timeout occurred" from the whr_install.bat file after it tries the TFTP.

    I'm on Win/XP Sp2 and fully up to date. Firewall (Sunbelt) is disabled. Directly wired to Buffalo with static IP as per instructions. Reset the Buffalo to defaults before starting.

    Any ideas what to try next? Is it just a question of keeping trying until it works?

    you could try connecting it via Hub/Switch
    and the model you have seems to be a little bit faster on the boot wait.

    The OpenWRT suggestion worked first time. Many thanks.
    I didn't bother with the hub/switch.

    I just shook up a pitcher of Tomato juice and Tequila. Nice and cold, can I offer you a glass ? Celery salt, or no ?

    It's a wet and gloomy evening in England, so maybe something a little warmer....

    PS I found that by mistake I had flashed to Tomato 1.01, so maybe that was part of the problem. Now upgraded to 1.07 with no issues.
