I assume you mean using tftp.  If so ...
I have had the download timeout problems.  It is not related (directly) to
the EP boards.  It is more of a tftp issue.  If there is alot of network
traffic, tftp might not receive its packets in time.  If you have a large
file with alot of network traffic, it defintely will timeout.  I worked
around these issues by isolating the EP and host from the other network
traffic and/or splitting the srec file into smaller parts.

PS: we are working on a ELF binary dnload capabiltiy, watch EPs website next
month.  That will speed up the dnload.
