I have a linksys e2000 which failed a firmware update. It will respond to a ping with a til=100 for a few seconds after a power up like the Peacock thread mentioned for a tftp flash. I have been able to send a firmware file several times with tftp (initial ddwrt as well as stock) and waited up to an hour. It still doesn't seem to respond.
Here is what I get from tftp:
tftp - i 192.168.1.1 put FW_E2000_1.0.04.007_US_20101201_code.bin
Transfer Successful: 5444608 bytes in 26 second(s), 209408 bytes/s
If I send a file the router will continually respond to a ping with til=100 until I power cycle or hard reset. Then the few second window of being able to ping. Any ideas why the tftp flash isn't working?
