Pace America 3801HGV Router Backup/Restore?

Hi,

 

I cannot find a way in the browser/gui to save the router settings for backup in case I mess something up when trying to reconfigure it.  Is there a way to backup and later restore saved configuration?   Is there a command line login that provides more commands? Or am I just missing it in gui options?

 

Thanks

Jeff

Only way is to write them down so you can re-apply them if necessary. 😉

You could reset it to factory defaults if you foul something up.

But he still has to write down the current settings or it's lost and he'd have to figure it out. 😉

I guess, but other than the passwords that are on the side of the unit that may have been changed, it's probably working straight out of the box with default settings.

Yep, the only way to backup and restore settings is to bounce them off of a sheet of paper.

And has previously been said, that's often a good idea anyway, so that you start at a clean slate.

What sort of settings were you looking to change? The AT&T Troubleshoot and Resolve tool backs up only wireless settings.

1)Login

2) Click on the "Internet" tab of the tool.

3) Click "Manage My Wi-Fi"

4) Click "Restore My Settings"

Thanks everyone for the replies...I really hate this router.   Is it possible to keep Uverse but use a normal 'aftermarket' router. I know I can put one down-stream of the AT&T garbage with only 10/100Mbps ports, but I'd prefer to only have a single router.

 

I think it is crazy that any customization for things such as dhcp fixed-IP addresses, Port-forwarding, etc are not easily saved/restored.

 

Thanks again,

Jeff

You must have an AT&T-provided gateway for U-verse.  You may not purchase any third party device to connect directly to AT&T's U-verse network; it will not work.

 

The 2WIRE/PACE 3801 is not the only device AT&T has, but they all run firmware customized for AT&T and will likely all have some issues that you will not like.  Your best bet is to configure your own router behind it.
