    N66U: bl_version 1.0.1.9

    Not sure what the proper way to check is, but it looks like I've got 64K of nvram -
    Code:
    nvram show 2> /dev/null | wc -c
    65514
    And that's not enough. It's full, and new changes are causing data to be lost.

    Is there a way to increase nvram? 256K would be nice.

    I've also got an AC68U: bl_version 1.1.1.2. I haven't yet started pushing the limits of nvram, but what should I expect with that?

    Code:
    nvram show > /dev/null
    size: 65545 bytes (-9 left)
    How can I work around this? Or clear out "garbage"?

    For the N66U go to John's Fork. Should allow you to save things like vpn certs to /jffs easier. Some time ago on my N66U i moved vpn certs from nvram to /jffs. Look for my early posts. The AC68U will work well with 384.13.
