  • @Divin3: yeah I thought of that but why the config is not available in config interface? – RYN Oct 29 '15 at 14:59
  • There is no telnet functionality for this device. There are some hidden settings that you can access here:​.htm or – Divin3 Oct 29 '15 at 14:59

The presence of the SNMP settings in the backup doesn't mean that the router supports SNMP. It is possible that Linksys uses the same backup function for multiple routers and some of them does support SNMP.

I have also downloaded the manual and did not find anything about SNMP mentioned in it.

Also, according to this, the router lacks the telnet functionality.

hello OverCLK , dont you know that this product as well as the wag160n and wag320n lacks telnet functionality ?

All You can do is hope that this will change in the future with a software update (I don't think this will happen). Or You can contact Linksys support for more information.
