    I finally just updated the three and a half year old firmware in my RT-N66U to the most current firmware. :)

    Of course I see there are many changes to the settings that are available in this new firmware.

    I realize there is a lot of 'it depends' on how to set settings, but is there a document or someplace I can go online to find general best practice suggestions and guidelines for the settings in this latest firmware?

    Thanks!

    a) factory reset after update to newest firmware and re-config the router (in your case John's save/restore tool can help as it only handles the user entered settings - as long as you stay on the 380.x firmware - 382/384 is not supported)
    b) leave everything on default unless you NEED and UNDERSTAND the consequences of the change
    c) be happy with your good old N66U (I have still one as backup in case my both AC87Us would fail...)! :cool:
