WGR614L and TFTP on Windows

Using Windows to send an image to your WGR614L is a little more tricky than using Linux. The reason why is because of how the CFE works or is designed - the CFE is the bootloader for the router. It initializes all the basic components on your router, then it looks for a image to boot.

The bootloader basically only waits 3 seconds. If you have not sent or started a tftp session in that time, or at that time, it closes tftp and tries to boot the image that is already on it.
