Is there a way to completely erase the nvram?
What are wanting to do since this can be taken in 1 of 2 ways.
1)Completely erase it = nothing on the chip and has to be flashed with a jtag or other such device.
2)Set it back to factory defaults to erase any configuration changes you made.
After you've loaded Tomato onto the router you can just go to Administration,Configuration,Restore Default Configuration, Select Erase all data in NVRAM or you can unplug the router, push in and hold the reset button, plug the router in while holding the reset button and keep holding it for 30 sec. Once you release the button the NVRAM will be cleared and the factory defaults will be restored. I've also read that just holding the reset button in for 30 sec (no unplugging or plugging in) will do this as well...
Well I have been having issues with reboots where I have to disconnect the ethernet cable from the wan port. If I do not do this the router will not come back up. This started when I had DD-WRT on it. I am exploring ways to get whatever remnants are still there & causing my problem.
