First, I want to thank the Tomato team. This thing is ridiculous.
I just got a Belkin Sharemax n300 and put tomato-K26USB- 1.28.7483.3 MIPSR2-Toastman-RT-Ext on it after having unstable wifi with dd-wrt (and only having used dd-wrt before, but hadn't seen much advantage over stock linksys in the wrt54gl version besides customization).
i love that with this, i have an ftp server set up, DLNA media server running, and Samba for XBMC.
1) does it take a while to scan a Movies folder for media server?
1b) once it's fully scanned, with ram selected as source for database, it won't have to do that full scan every time I add content will I?
2) I cannot for the life of me write to the hard drive I attach to my router but I can read using Cyber Duck FTP client for FTP server and I checked to make sure the account has read/write features enabled as well. Any ideas?
3) is this particular router powerful enough to stream both 720p and 1080p mkv content over the network?
4) if i can't get 'write' working with FTP server, I'll have to disconnect the hard drive, load movies and stuff onto it, and reconnect it to the router each time I want new content. Do I have to unmount the drive before disconnecting or how does this work? … hopefully, I can just keep it constantly connected and use the write feature of ftp server for wireless transfer.
I think that's it for now. But I love this Tomato software and only wish I had tried it earlier. Plus, I am so unbelievably happy Tomato offers HFS+ support.
