I got TomotoUSB installed on E3000. So far it's been working great for 3 days (though I cannot compare it to the original firmware that I ditched immediately). Still there are things I cannot figure out how to or why so. I hope I can get some advice here.
1. What is the recommended (or known to work well) Transmit Power setting? Increasing it doesn't seem to improve anything.
2. Can't I use G and N at the same time on the 2.4GHz band, when the 5GHz band is used for N only?
3. I turned off bandwidth monitoring and logging. Will this help in any way, in terms of performance, memory usage, …? (I setup four QoS rules for VoIP, using L7 filter)
4. How to setup blacklist (Ad, P2P, Spyware, …) in tomato, just like PeerBlock? Can the MoBlock in Optware be a good alternative?
5. I installed Transmission in Optware on a USB flash memory. Will this run OK without a swap partition?
6. UPnP does not seem to work with Transmission (using daemon), though I set "port-forwarding-enabled" option true. Anyone know why? I also checked it by running the daemon foreground. It said port forwarding status has changed to "???". I didn't see a word regarding UPnP in the output.
7. To launch Transmission when the router is turned on, what is the best way? Init script? Mounting script? The following script is what I'm planning to use:
if [ -d /mnt/optware -a ! -d /opt/bin ]; then
mount -o noatime -t ext2 -obind /mnt/optware/opt /opt
transmission-daemon -g /opt/.config/transmission
8. Transmission is configured to save files in an NTFS partition currently. It looks ntfs-3g process is consuming about 40% of CPU power. If I switch over to ext3, for example, will this go away?
9. Does anyone have experience with amule in Optware? I installed it but cannot figure out how to configure it.
