    before I take the switch from Thibor 15c on a 1.1 GL Router, I have 2 Questions:

    1. How is the update process done? Simply using the firmware upgrade tab in Thibor15c and clearing the settings after successfull upgrade?

    2. What does the SES Button do by default in Tomato? I had turned it off in the Thibor configuration and this allowed me to switch the wireless interface on or off by just pressing the SES Button for 1 Second. Does Tomato do the same, or is there any script I can use? I like this feature of switching very much.

    1. Reset nvram, then upgrade from the administraion/upgrade page / then in Tomato Clear nvram again.

    2. Tomato allows you to program several activies to the SES button

    You'll find additional info on upgrading & SES in the readme.htm located in the firmware download.

    Thanks very much for the replies. That answers my questions ok. Also the screenshot was nice and helped much.

    Since Thibor has this WLAN On/Off thingie when pressing the SES button, I'll try to locate this script in the evening and copy it for use in Tomato.
    Or does anyone else have this script to post here?
    It is done somehow with "ifconfig eth1 up/down".
    Sorry I am only beginning with Linux...
