    Dear all,

    in the official FAQ it is says that a complete erase of the nvram
    is recommended after installing Tomato.

    I have a Linksys WRT54GL with newly installed Tomato v1.28.1816 over stock Linksys firmware.

    Should I erase the nvram after installing Tomato?

    What are the implications if I don't?

    Can I save current Tomato config in text?
    (since it kept all my old settings)

    thanks in advance

    Absolutely erase the NVRAM! When switching from one firmware to another like that especially will require some changes in settings that only will occur when you erase that nvram. It'll only take a few minutes and you'll be assured that any issues that should arise aren't related to the old nvram settings fighting you.
