  • backup your config
  • flash without keeping settings
  • use your backup as a reference
  • mwlwifi is not current on 18.x I don't believe.

@dennyscabral, welcome to the community!

# change to /tmp directory
cd /tmp

# download sysupgrade file
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/releases/18.06.4/targets/mvebu/cortexa9/openwrt-18.06.4-mvebu-cortexa9-linksys-wrt1900ac-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

#check the hash of file
sha256sum openwrt-18.06.4-mvebu-cortexa9-linksys-wrt1900ac-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

# the sum should be -17560283bf0f50b9e072a325138d9d27ff3eb124e63a7d1292647bf9aae082b5

# if it matches - run sysupgrade
sysupgrade -n openwrt-18.06.4-mvebu-cortexa9-linksys-wrt1900ac-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

The -n argument will erase your current configs, be sure to make a backup.


i only can do this from the command line or can i do it from the browser???

...wow, quite a late reply.

Both, you can backup your config and flash/erase configs on the web GUI.

It's under: System > Backup / Flash firmware.
