1.2x -> 1.3x is a major update.  Do a Factory reset on the router.  Flash the firmware and then reconfigure the router manually, DON'T use a saved config.  You may see issues when using a saved config.

Yeah, that is true (but I didn't had problems using older configs) - you could avoid it if you -like I had done it- upgrade through the whole firmware history. But the point was that the 1.21 fw does not save anything after the first setup - even not new firmware. So, you are forced reset the router, upgrade to newer fw and then reconfigure it.
