Hi everyone. I am new to wireless networking and the dd-wrt as well. I can't get it (my whr-g54s) to flash though. I tried using the web interface firmware upgrade and I get an invalid firmware error. I then tried to TFTP as the wiki says to do ( http://wrt-wiki.bsr-clan.de/index.php?title=Installation#Flashing_with_TFTP )

When I try the TFTP command -- tftp -i 192.168.11.1 PUT dd-wrt.v23_mini_generic -- I get the reply that I did not correctly enter the command. I have the other CMD window open and it is pinging fine and i hit enter as soon as I get the first ping again.

I am so eager to try this out I bought 3 of these buffalos just so I can experiment with them. (and have a spare in case I ruin one.. heh heh)

Any help would be awesome, thanks! Very Happy

Eko thanks! It didn't work but I did get a different error message.

"tftp cant read from local file dd-wrt.v23_mini_generic.bin"

Do I need to enter the whole location like "C:\Desktop\dd-wrt...."?

Yes. Or copy the file to more accesible location.
