    I flashed to Tomato 1.11 today after getting my new WRT54GL up and running. I was in such a rush that I forgot to clear the settings/NVRAM before reflashing. The router is new, just came in the mail, and I had not changed any settings prior to the upgrade. My question is will my failure to clear the NVRAM first impact performance in a negative way? If yes, what should I do?


    [Also, I noticed the LED's behind the Cisco Systems badge do not light up after updating to Tomato. Is this a common issue? Doesn't really matter either way. I just want to know if this is Tomato-related.]

    If you're concerned, you can reset to factory defaults now, and reconfigure.. Then you should have no worries...

    Its not going to affect anything in the long run. You can reset now like mentioned, however i have uploaded many a firmware and generally dont clear (because i hate reconfiguring everyting). Generally for me a reboot of the device clears out the muck, but it is recommended to do and generally the first thing that will be asked if you ever run into any issues.

    Thanks for the replies. I have another question for you.

    I'm going to update to 1.13 but before I do that...how do you recommend I go about it? The Tomato readme mentioned nothing about clearing the NVRAM so it looks like I'm relying on the charity of this board to help me out. The more thorough your instructions, the better. I'm still new to all this. Thanks.

    Should I reset the configuration after installing Tomato?

    It has been stated before that unless explicitly noted there is no need to clear & reset NVRAM between Tomato revisions. You can safely update between recent releases without concern.


    Found it, in the FAQ:

    Great, that's exactly what I did the day I updated to 1.11. Thanks for the help.
