Tomato by shibby – upgrade procedure and cfg backup | LinksysInfo.org

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/02/24

Reminder to self: [WayBackTomato by shibby – upgrade procedure and cfg backup | LinksysInfo.org:

I keep a text file with the changes I’ve made after a fresh install and I keep the file updated as I make changes.
