You can not backup and restore to a different build (well you can but that is useless).
If you reset you have to put in settings manually.
Whether you should reset is debatable if you were to come from a really old build e.g. > 2 years old I would always do it, in your case you might just upgrade and only reset when experiencing problems.
But a fresh start is perhaps a good idea.
Recent WireGuard can import conf file for very easy setup.

Can a list of the oet contents suffice in setting those after an upgrade?
'nvram show | grep oet > oet.txt' and then using that to 'nvram set < oet.txt' work?
Just don't forget to move oet.txt off the router before you flash, as flashing will reboot, and rebooting will wipe and reinitialize the file system. _________________ Six Linksys WRT1900ACSv2 routers on 48141: VLANs, VAPs, NAS, client mode, OpenVPN client (AirVPN), DDNS, wireguard servers and clients (AzireVPN), three DNSCrypt DNS providers (incl Quad9) via VPN clients.
