To load a previously saved configuration file, click Browse next to Load Settings From Local Hard Drive. Once you have located the file (config.bin) on your hard drive, click OK and then click Load.

Note: If you have upgraded or downgraded the firmware on your wireless router, do not load configuration files that were saved from previous version of firmware. This will not work and can damage the unit.
