Archiving the Router Configuration

    I have many wireless routers from lots of different companies in lots of different client sites. Keeping up-to-date with all thier various configurations is getting to be a pain. The vendors (e.g., Linksys, Netgear, Motorola) provide internal web servers for interactive configuration, and they usually provide same say to save a backup of the configuration which can be reloaded in an emergency...but, that's not enough.

    I want a printed copy of the configuration I can keep in each client's network reference manual, in the event we need to change something.

    Temporarily, I'm using a "web site downloader (Teleport Pro) to create a "mirror" website on my laptop, then take that back to the office so I can save it. That gives me the ability to read the last-recorded configuration information on my local computer.

    Teleport Pro won't print the website pages, and the competing products really do a lousy job of downloading, even though they promise to allow printing. Unfortunately, even if you can get it downloaded, the printing really, really sucks. I've tried WebWhacker, WebCopier (& Pro) and SurfOffline.

    Has anyone figured out a way to print the relevant pages from the HTTP server of routers, for documentation of the configuration?

    what purpose could this possibly serve?
    you can just print the pages you need from your browser if you really want or do an nvram show and print that... don't know what purpose this could serve as opposed to a backup file, but if you give more info maybe I can come up with some better answers...
