Copying settings from m1424wr rev f to m1424wr rev i

Anyone successfully copied over router settings, static ip and port forwarding settings successfully from rev f to rev I. I have a good amount of rules setup on the older router, that I will prefer not to spend a few hours manually entering while moving to the rev I. Appreciate input on this..thanks in advance.

The configuration files should be encrypted, so chances are good that the import to the Rev. I will fail. Worth a try, but plan to configure manually.

It's been a while since I upgraded to a Rev I so I can't be sure this will work but unless someone chimes in with different info, I don't see how it can hurt to try this. 

Assuming the Ref F has the same ability to save it's configuration to a file, in the setup page click on Advanced  > Configuration Filie > Save Configuration File.

Then replace the Ref F with the Rev I, go to the same page and use "Load Configuration File" to import your old settings.

If that doesn't work, you can always reset the Rev I to its defaults.

One more thing....before you swap routers, you need to release the Rev F's assigned WAN IP address so the Rev I, when installed, will get a fresh IP assigned to it.

Again, assuming the Ref F setup is the same or similiar, click on My Network > Network Connections > Full Status > Broadband Connection (Ethernet Coax)  > Settings.  At DHCP Lease: click on Release and then immediately power down the old router.  You can then proceed to connect and fire up the Rev I and see if you can successfully restore the configuration from the file you saved.

Good luck.
