|I have a TP-Link C7 router that I had installed DD-WRT onto a couple of years ago. I have been seriously using it as my VPN only unit and it is attached through my ISP Primary router. I have it on a different subnet and it has a myriad of settings, that are tedious to populate. Yes I have made dot bin backups of all stages through my update).
I had been advised (I think from my VPN Service provider) that before one 'updates firmware' one should reset the Router to factory (30,30,30). I recently did an update through the Firmware Interface, to a newer version of the Firmware, for my specific unit. I did not do what they suggested because of the work involved in re-entering all the settings.
What could possibly be the issue they might have been referring to and should I just disregard the 'caution'?
