Migrate settings from GL-AR750S-Ext (Slate) -to- GL-MV1000W (Brume-W)?

Hello All,
I have been a happy owner of a GL-AR750S-Ext Gigabit Travel AC Router (Slate) except for LAN-to-WAN throughput issues. I have gigabit internet connectivity and if I put a device on the LAN side of the AR750s, I am limited to around 300-450 megabits/sec, however, if I place the same device on the WAN side of the AR750s I can attain 980+ megabits/sec.

The reason for this posting, is that I would like to seamlessly migrate all of the settings from the AR750s to the MV1000W. I don’t currently use the WiFi aspects of the AR750s, so that, I only need to move the LAN IP & DHCP Reservation List, OpenVPN Server Configuration and certificate & keys, port forwarding rules & ports, DynDNS configuration, etc.

Does anyone have a suggested method to essentially and successfully backup the AR750s settings and restore them as appropriate/desired to the MV1000W?

Can I literally perform a “backup” on one router and “restore” it into the other one?

Thanks, in advance, for any help!

In Advanced menu ,you could to back up settings to a file,and restore to new router.

First, the speed from WAN to LAN should be pretty fast. Are you using 3.105 firmware?

You should not back up settings and restore the settings in a different model. It is better just to set up manually.

Yes, the AR750s is running the latest production release v3.105 firmware.

The MV1000W has much higher throughput than the AR750s!

I was hoping to avoid performing a manual configuration of the new MV1000W router given I have the data from the AR750s…

I guess I can investigate the “tar.gz” backup file’s contents and write some scripts to read the AR750s data and format it into something I can use to configure the MV1000W via the command-line interface…

Thanks for the reply!

I know how to do, it just want to confirm that I will not break something in the process…
