I was thinking about the random restarts the router had when I installed som apps into its ramdrive. Probably because the watchdog thought that the router used too much ram. Wouldn't it be possible to install the apps on a usb drive instead?

Yes, it's possible and works for vfat fs.
That's the simplest way to inject telnetd as well.

nice. does someone know about the random restarts, if they have fixed it in the latest firmware?

As for resets - there is a code in the firmware (namely /init/recover_eth2) which resets the unit when the number of wlan receive errors too big...

Well at least it had problems earlier with random restarts. I didn't use wlan at home when I was testing to run telnet and other apps on the router. The uptime was usually like 4 days.
