    Hi there. i've entered some cru lines via telnet that seem to only work when entered via CLI and not the GUI. problem is, each time i restart the router, the commands are all erased. is there anyway to commit the command to the nvram or something similar so that it doesn't get erased with each reboot? Thanks !

    Should be OK to paste the commands into the init script. A "sleep 10" at the start may help to delay any commands that might otherwise try to run too early.

    U can put them in the Init Script at Administration -> Scripts -> Init Script.

    As for putting a sleep command, I have only needed it to set the bridge priority after the sleep command, otherwise the other items I put in the init script works fine.

    Problem is the commands i input @ the init part o the GUI doesnt seem to work. only way to get them to work is via the CLI. thats why. is there any other way to permanently save changes?

    Are u sure u have keyed in the correct cron command in the script? Perhaps try to put a sleep command in front as what mstombs had specified.
