Just ordered a RAX120! Any easy way to move over from my R8000?

Hi - just took advantage of the good eBay discounts and purchased a RAX120.

 

I have a R8000.

 

Is there any easy way to move my network names etc from one to the other or do I basically have to set up the new one from scratch?

 

Thanks!

You made a good choice in routers.  I went from a R7900 to the RAX120 and had to re-enter all my data.  Unfortunately, the RAX120 does not remove an IP address form the table of available IP's when you reserve one.  You must keep track on paper.  Why?  I just don't understand why an expensive new router does not implement a standard feature of previous routers.

 

I have found FW 108 performs better than newer versions.  It is Deja vu all over again just like the R7000 FW.  It may take another year or two for the FW to mature.

 

I still like my new RAX120 but, I am anxious to see it live up to its potential.

Not really. You can make life easier with screen shots of the important settings.

Just another user.

OK it looks like I am wrong about FW 108.  It has spontaneously rebooted the router twice this week.  Going back to FW 114 until something better comes along
