Hi,

When you say console" do you mean you have a serial connection or you're connecting your router with telnet, SSH or Via HTTP ?

Since you're saying that you're using a Laptop you should be connected to your net either via ethernet or Wireless. Since I don't think you have multiple interfaces active at any time your tftp server should be listening to the same IP that you're connecting to your switch. If not TFT must be connecting to the wrong (probably virtual) interface.

I guess you're using free tftp daemon called tftpd32. If this is the software you're using you can modify your server interface from the initial page. just set your tftpd home directory and select your active interface from "Server Interface" field and you're good to go.

it's the same IP of your laptop,, just out the router and the laptop on the same subnet,,
then run the TFTP server and make your job..

be advices that you can ping both ways between the router and the laptop ?

check if you have a default router
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 (interface directly connected to your LAN)
