Q: I have lots of settings like static IPs, DHCP assignments, and the like. Will I lose all those settings after this upgrade?

A: Doing a clean firmware upgrade – which will reset to factory, i.e. wipe all settings – is your best option with the least chance of issues. You could take screen shots of your existing configurations, and re-enter them post firmware upgrade.

Or you can check the ‘Attempt to preserve settings’ box, on the Update Firmware page, prior to upgrading the firmware, and this will keep your existing configurations in place.




When upgrading from a 4.x to a 4.x you shouldn’t have any issues doing this. However, if you go this route it’s still a good idea to take screen shots of your settings just in case something does go wrong.

Note that Parental Controls > Web Filter Settings will not be affected by the update.
