-Basically I used the netkit's tftp procedure. +You can try something like this (from a GNU/Linux computer):
<code> <code>
-tftp 192.168.1.1 +1. Turn off the power to the router and leave it off until the final step. 
-binary +2. Make sure your computer has a static IP address from 192.168.1.x (eg. 192.168.1.4) 
-rexmt 1 +3. Make sure the ethernet cable is plugged into one of router's LAN ports and the other end into computer's ethernet port 
-timeout 60 +3. cd to the folder where you have the image 
-trace +4. change the name of the new firmware to code.bin , then type : 
-Packet tracing on+5. echo -e &quot;binary\nrexmt 1\ntimeout 60\ntrace\nput code.bin\n" | tftp 192.168.1.1 
-tftp&gt; put openwrt-xxx-x.x-xxx.bin+6. plug the power into the router, it should flash.

-Port 4 is the internal/cpu port. Port 5 is probably unconnected.+Port 4 is the internal/cpu port. Port 5 (tagged 'CPU' in LUCI) is probably unconnected
 + 
 +Note that, at least for 12.09, switch support seems to have issues: switch configuration changes don't "take" until a reboot, and when configuring tagged and untagged VLANs, outgoing traffic for the untagged VLAN is still tagged. This needs to be further investigated. 
 + 
 +If you don't need the switch, consider swapping the WAN and LAN ports as eth1 is directly connected.
