Hello everyone,

I see TFTP is instructed in recovery section only. Even FlashRouters use WebUpgrade as preffered method for all their routers.

Can someone explain me difference between these two method and why one is preffered over another for installation?

And in which case you may consider TFTP other than recovery purpose? Why some guides instruct to upload stock firmware using TFTP then use Web GUI for DD-WRT flash?

You are giving me a headache. Remedial questions like this. Use the search function of the forum. I believe there is an R9000 thread in the references sticky at the top of the forum that you can read through and answer your questions.

Announcement: PLEASE USE SEARCH FIRST
