If I do a restart of my Sonicwall router will I lose any of my settings?

You are likely not impacted, but those who are would need to do a hard reset to restore the router to the default configuration as well as updating to the latest system patch. Here is a list of the affected devices:

restarting your sonicwall does not erase setting you need to really work at blowing it away ;) and likely not affected ...but I gave that to u a while ago so your firmware is probably old not sure if you can get new firmware without subscription
