    Hi all,

    Been searching all the forums but i couldnt find info on how to setup static ip instead via ssh/telnet maybe using VI editor.

    is this possible? ive been using victek/shibby builds but later on its getting kinda hard to enter around 30+ static ips through gui page with all those new releases.

    Any help would be appreciated. :)

    You can set here dnsmasq command (dhcp-host) to manually map IP addresses to mac addresses. e.g.

    Mind you, if you do the static mapping here I suggest you forget the static GUI mapping forever.

    Actually, my observation is this, if your upgrading/downgrading FW from same modder, there is no need to perform nvram erase and if i wanted to restore save settings, I still use the tool provided in the router under "Administration->Configuration" Backup.
    The save/restore concept is not bad either, May we go 1 step further, incorporate that also in the router? So that, everything will done much easier.

    Could I steal This thread to ask a question since we are talking about backing up and restoring config files

    If I had shibby V92 on my RT-N66U and I upgrade it to V100 could I use the old config file considering the change to 64K and multi-SSID fix, cause I really dont want to reconfigure my multi-SSID and all my static IPs

    from what i read from shibby post, answer is "no" for first time FW installation with 64k.
