    Just found some old WRT routers running 1.19 tomato.I want to upgrade to latest 1.28 but i dont want to write the configuration all over again.Is this possible or i must do an nvram erase.If an nvram erase is required then which one is the latest firmware after 1.19 which does not require an nvram erase in order for the .config file to run properly.

    You really need to erase, there is a big time gap between the firmwares and it's quite likely that the old config will cause problems. However, usually we want to copy the large nvram variables to another router to save hours of retyping, such as Static DHCP and Access Restrictions etc. Try the following method.

    You should be able to use this method to obtain your old config in a form where you can easily use parts of it on another router. If you don't have a tools / system box, telnet or ssh to the router and use the command line from there.
