I went through the guide long ago to help convert. I followed instructions here:

I moved to FreshTomato a year and a half ago because I was under the impression that I would need to SSH in every time there was a firmware upgrade upgrade available, I'd need to SSH in again. Would I have needed to do that? Or would subsequent Merlin updates have flashed in the GUI quick and easy?

I'm asking now because running into speed issues with FreshTomato ... I just upgraded to gigabit speeds but the router is topping at ~200Mbps. I get a clean ~900Mbps direct to the modem.

Would it be possible to flash Merlin 384.19 directly from the FreshTomato GUI?

Help is appreciated.
