basically, i have my netgear.cfg backup file made from within the wireless router... need to read it in plaintext and be able to edit it to shoot it back in as a restore.

netgear wireless router WGR614 version 4, firmware Version 3.37 Oct 17 2003

i have easy access to windows and debian linux if that helps.

i've tried 'byteswap' on linux from here:

but even specifying the correct infile/outfile, the outfile is exactly the same as the infile.  tried word offset 2, 4, and 8... tho 8 errors out.

cfg file size is exactly 31,652

any ideas?
