Hooray!  Not sure if I helped, but he figured it out.

No, I'd seen most of that before. Looks like the main trick, not
mentioned anywhere; is to simply ignore all the mentions of 30/30/30
resets, ignore everything out there. Simply flip over the unit, read the
MAC address, add that with a static entry to and *then* use

Seems that when in TFTP mode it doesn't respond to ARP. Now if only I'd
known that a couple months ago a great deal of frustration could have
been avoided. I'm wondering if no one out there ever upgrades routers (I
was looking for the faster switch, plus the USB port for enough flash to
load DebWRT).

Thanks, finally have *that* bloody problem solved. Now I just need to
climb the next step to getting this thing in place.
