Bekijk de volledige versie : What can I do with WL-500G Premium

19-09-2007, 12:35
hi, just like to quickly check....

If i have a WL-500G Premium
I'd like to know whether I can do the following
with and/or without 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT and OpenWRT.

can I run a HTTP server, storing files on a USB external drive connected to the router, that opens public access to the world wide web? apache?
will it be very difficult to set up?

heard there are some issues with BitTorrent downloading, like not possible to have encryption, etc etc. Is this true (for default firmware, and for 3rd party)?

What will be the bittorrent client that I can use? uTorrent, possible?

I plan to connect USB printer to the router, will it be very difficult? or will it be more or less 'plug and play'?

please help

thanks in advance

oh and..

This router shud have to probs installing the full versions of DD-WRT right? i think its quite big...
for this router, since I can put big USB hard drive, am I right to say that actually, no matter how big the linux firmware is, I will have no problems using them (as it fits on USB hard drive).
