Ray123's post about the E3000 60K NVRAM builds prompted me to post this.
I have just over 1k left on my RT-N16. Nothing can be deleted - in fact soon I will have to consider other options such as saving user db (static ARP, restriction lists) elsewhere. The problem is, many of my routers have to be maintained by desk staff and this is just more things for them to screw up because they don't understand it.
The obvious answer is increased NVRAM size. To my way of thinking, 32k is a ridiculously small amount of NVRAM and like Ray, I find it surprising that it is so small even in these newer routers. Cisco routers have commonly have 128k, I believe. I'm not a programmer, but I'm wondering, as I expect you are, if the cfe can be altered or the firmware somehow modified to allow use of more space. Linksys have obviously realized this is going to be a problem and they addressed it with the E series.
I wanted to try the E3000 software on the RT, but the possibility seems to be that I'd get 60k OK but then cfe might then write things in the middle of it and overwrite data.
What, if any, are the options?
