    I have been running the v23 beta 1 from 9/14/05.

    I have a lot of settings. I have made a backup.

    What is the best way to upgrade to the final?

    1a) Reset to factory defaults, upgrade firmware, restore backup?
    1b) Reset to firmware defaults, upgrade firmware, restore backup?

    2) Just upgrade, no reset?

    3) Reset to factory, upgrade, re-enter everything by hand?

    Since your version is old, it is:

    4) Reset to factory, upgrade, reset to factory, re-enter everything by hand.

    you need to do the reset to factory by either holding the button on the back of the router for 30 seconds, or telnet/ssh into the router and issue: mtd nvram erase; reboot

    Stick with holding reset button for 30 sec. There is a known issue where 'mtd erase nvram;reboot' & 'erase nvram;reboot' freezes up the router during the reboot and you have to cycle the power.

    See bug 170

    I was surprised to see that in the "Production" version.
    I power cycled and all was fine. The NVRAM settings were reset, by the command (I checked, using nvram show) - it's just that the router doesn't come back to life properly.

    Yup me too. It's a little disappointing that to completely clear nvram you MUST be close enough to the router to either unplug it after executing the commands or hold the reset button down. BrainSlayer said he thought the problem was with the compiler and that using the newer compiler resolved the problem but broke uPnP which he felt was a more important feature to have working. Even though I never use uPnP I have to agree with him for most users sake. Oh well... luckily clearning nvram isn't something that you need to do often.

    Exactly, the erasing works properly but for some reason the kernel locks up when you try to reboot it. Once you cycle the power everything is back to defaults.

    I reckon that explains why SIPatH fails to deliver 2-way audio streams to my WRTP54G that is attached behind my WRT54GS with DD-WRT+VoIP v2.3. All I get from my VoIP Line1/2 is a 1-way audio stream.
