    I am running tomato 1.04 on a WRT54GS v1.1.

    If I want to upgrade to 1.05, will I have to do all the settings new by hand or is there any more comfortable way to do that without risks to get troubles because of the old settings?

    Can I also do all that remote?

    Please help me.

    You dont need to do all the settings new they still active after upgrading. For safeness you can backup your settings within the GUI Administration->Configuration

    I think thats not a good idea and i'm not sure at all if this works !

    I'm not sure how remote he is, but I flashed 1 radio the other day from a wireless client of the radio and another through a WDS connected radio. Both worked perfectly.

    I have successfully flashed through wds and although it is possible to flash wirelessly neither method is recommended... it is not that hard to plug in.

    I have used pc anywhere to connect to my tower... started the process the reconnected with pc anywhere to complete the process after the restart is complete.

    I have flashed over the internet which is safer then doing it via wireless, but for the most part most of these devices will accept a firmware upgrade from any connection if its allowed via the firmware settings. Theres just less of a chance for error if you do it directly connected.

    Hi folks,

    so lets resume: remote update might work but flashing locally is more secure. If you dont want a 'long' downtime the only way is to flash local !

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained ! :biggrin:

    I've been living on the edge and updating remotely for the past few updates. Only problem I've had is once it said the upload or whatever was corrupt but it just stayed at the current firmware version and rebooted the router I believe. Then just had to wait for PPPoE to reconnect and I was able to reconnect remotely (with the help of Tried the update again and it went fine.

    Unless the radio is in the attic of a hotel that has a single access doorway and a 320 feet climb through the attic with only a flashlight, and you have to crawl on your belly through the little holes in the firewall sheet rock with plenty of rock-wool insulation. It was worth gambling the price of a $40 radio to see if it worked !
