    Hello.
    I have a problem with writing down "Ethernet bootloader" in PIC18F67J60 and his high-order version (PIC18F97J60).
    Formerly, I used "SIOW BOOTLOADER" for write down "Bootloader"'s in PIC controller serial PIC16, but now this "Desktop App" - unsuitable ...
    What kind of program to be necessary on PC, that to write down "Ethernet Bootloader" in PIC18F67J60?
    So, if someone met this problem - please help me ...
    TIA.

    Are you looking for a programmer? What desktop app do you mean?

    No, I'm looking program for my PC.
    So, maybe I was incorrect expressed ... I need a program for PC, with the help of which I can write down "Ethernet Bootloader from Microchip©" in my microcontroller PIC18F67J60.
    I have PROM programmer "Microchip ICD2", but I can't write down "Ethernet Bootloader from Microchip©" in my controller, because I don't have necessary program for PC.
    In "Development Studio MPLAB IDE" - don't have possibility to write down "Bootloader" in PIC controller, because I would want knowing - what kind of programs for PC, I need to use for it ? :(
    P.S. For PIC16, I used program - "SIOW BOOTLOADER", but now I can't use this program ...

    There is something lost in the translation. I don't know what you need.

    Bootloader consists of two programs, the firmware which is programmed to the microcontroller and the application which is run on the PC. These two pairs must match. So to answer your question, we have to know, which bootloader firmware are you using?

    Microchip also provides ethernet bootloader, as part of its TCP/IP stack. Both the bootloader firmware and the application (using tftp.exe from MSWin) are available in the TCP/IP stack package. You can download it from this page http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=2680&dDocName=en537041

    Install the package, and you should have the ethernet bootloader firmware which you have to program to your target microcontroller, connect the system to the PC using ethernet, configure the PC IP address (the default is documented in the help file), reset the microcontroller and within 4 seconds you have to connect to the microcontroller by running the tftp program. See the help file for more information.

    Don't forget that you need a special linker file tailored to the specific bootloader. The file is also available in the TCP/IP stack package.
