Is there any way to save all the current settings into a file that is readable, as I want to try and factory re-set my router, but I have a decent size network which took me a while to work my way through (I'm not good at this stuff), and having a list of settings that "works" might help me through the process. Recently had a internet stuff-up, and my ISP gave me a new modem. Also, I feel that maybe I'm not utilising the ASUS to its best advantages. I have tried going to "SAVE" settings, and all i get is a one line garbled output on a file which I have no control over where to save it. I have a mac, so maybe that doesnt help. Thanks

How to I use get a text-based backup?
Connect to your router over SSH/telnet, and run the following:

Code:
nvram show | sort
If you have a USB disk plugged as /mnt/sda1/, then you can save the output to a text file:

Code:
nvram show | sort > /mnt/sda1/settings.txt
