check ur connections make sure ther correct and making good contact on the pins of the modem and also check ur com port settings make sure ther correct
 
checked all the connections, can some one put a picture up on how the connection fits.. the modem is actualy a 255 but i beleive they're the same as the 250...the connection cable is 4 wires black,red,blue,yellow....

your wires are different order than mine... but when i did my modem i had the black on the reverse of yours...

try black nearest the top of the modem. (end where the cable feed is plugged in) and left the bottom one free (where your black is plugged in on your picture)

Mine are

On max 232 left to right

set a static ip off
IP address 192.168.100.10
subnet 255.255.255.0
default gateway 192.168.100.1
and try starting your tftp server app before you open hyperterminal and dont forget to point your tftp server to your 250 hack file,you can do this by pressing settings in your tftp app.
it looks like its not finding the file

you dont need the cable feed connected...only when all is flashed connect the cable feed ...remember to set your ip back to obtain an IP address automatically when adding the 10mb config file..
 
got it to flash (i think) put ip to dynamic.. open hyperterminal connect to telnet no prob. enter login.. no problem
enter password.. wont let me type anything at all tried it a few times all goes threw till password. the curser is there but cant put anything in. if i hit enter it says invalid login..
