seems like your tftp server is not accessible. maybe due to wrong firewall config.

"seems like your tftp server is not accessible. maybe due to wrong firewall config."

thank you Sir,

Using windows 7
I tried opening firewall of public and private, still no good.

I tried downloading free tftp server. ---- success!!

Problem solved, my router is now alive! it was dead for about a year ^_^.

thank you so much  sir.
