Hi all!

I've finally decided to install linux on my HTPC but I'm coming across a series of probs...

Most of all are already either fixed or under way, except for one...

What do I have to do to use/control the WL-500W's ability to download torrents and/or other files like I did in Windows with the Download Master application?

Asus seems to have forgotten Linux users on that part.

Any ideas will be welcome!

THANKS IN ADVANCE!

install wine on your linux machine

dunno what kinda distro you have, should be possible on most ones:rolleyes:

Thanks wpte, I'll give it a shot tonight...

BTW, I have an asus P2-M2A690G barebone with an AMD AM2 processor..

it makes a sh*tload of noise... I've even considered using a tube to direct the air from the vent holes to the back of the tv so that I won't hear it as much... but I'm afraid it might affect the temperature inside the case..

Any ideas?

you can try using different silent fans (wich are not that cheap these days)
or you may try to change the fan speeds (to auto or a percentage) in the bios menu, if they're connected to the mobo ofc:)
