    Hi,

    After several years of using an Asus AC68U running Merlin I bought the Asus AC86U, and of course will run Merlin on it, too.

    Is there a way to transfer all of my settings from my previous to my new router?

    Yes, type them in :)

    One option is to have 2 browser windows open and copy/paste form one to the other.

    Don't save and try to reload a configuration file from one to the other.

    Thanks, dosborne.

    Of course I wanted to avoid that 100% manual stuff.

    My hope was that there is some automation available.

    If you are patient enough, you might be in luck, eventually.

    In the meantime, Xentrk utility is dhcp_staticlist.sh saves redoing all the dhcp manual assignments. I save screenshots of all my essential router settings when I need to do a full nuclear reset.
