    Location of smb.conf when ipkg samba is installed

    If the IPKG samba is installed the smb.conf is located in /opt/etc/samba

    Hi,

    Thats the reason why i state:
    This chapter is using the original samba of the firmware. If you installed the IPKG samba you will have to change the path /usr/sbin/ to /opt/...

    I must have read it too literally or maybe I am an ignorant. I thought it was only the path /usr/sbin that should be changed to /opt/.

    I did not get that /etc/ also had to be changed to /opt/etc/samba.

    By the way its an exellent guide!

    Cron

    Hi, I'm following your steps and on step 9, i cant seem to make cron appear on the task list... what should i check on slung and post boot and how do i do it? Thanks a lot!

    Hey guys,

    Just been reading through this quickly and it looks like a great router for a seed box. Just a quick question would i be able to use this as a Wireless Access Point for my TV to view youtube etc, as well as it being connected to a HDD downloading torrents?

    Cheers

    @jakesully
    is /opt/etc/init.d/S10cron executable?
    Post the result of "ls -la /opt/etc/init.d/".

    @wood88
    HDD and downloading torrents is no problem (but these routers are not the fastest ones...)

    Wireless AP is a native function for the routers.
    If your TV has WLAN and can show youtube videos you are fine with an asus router.
    Have a look at the different models for hardware specs.

    Thanks wengi for the quick response.
    Any particular model you would suggest that can do the Wireless Access Point & downloading torrents to a usb hdd?
    Also i remember seeing a chart saying which modems were compatible with olegs firmware and all there features but i cant seem to find it again, any chance you know where it is?

    Cheers

    Have a look at
    http://code.google.com/p/wl500g/downloads/list
    http://code.google.com/p/wl500g/wiki/Devices

    The RT-N16 is the newest hardware, but firmware ist still ALPHA.

    But i am not the hardware expert so i can not tell you which router to buy.
    My WL-HDD is damn old and slow and i never looked for a newer model.

    RT-N16 runs just as smooth as my WL-500W right now, but yes, it's still alpha

    If you want to download big torrents (25GB or something) the RT-N16 is recommended, the WL-500W has way too much overhead with the low memory for that

    cron problem

    Hi wengi, thank you for your response. here's the result.

    Hey wpte,

    This sounds like the one i need.
    Just a quick question if u dont mind.

    Just so i don't waste my money on this as im looking for this particular feature.

    I know wengi said the WL-500 could be a wireless access point and download torrents with a connected USB HDD at the same time and obviously being connected only via wireless to the computer, so i dont need to keep my computer on all day/night downloading stuff. Will the RT-N16 be able to do the same thing? (but obviously at faster due to the bigger processor).

    Thanks

    Yes, that's possible as well.
    If you choose oleg firmware, all the models with usb can do the same thing
    Only the webcam feature doesnt work yet on the RT-N models

    What happens if you do a "/opt/etc/init.d/S10cron start"?
    Error? cron starting?
    If cron is started:
    Stop it again and try the same with "/opt/etc/init.d/rc.unslung start"

    If not:
    post result of "cat /opt/etc/init.d/S10cron".
    This should show the content of S10cron.

    @wengi,

    Thank you very much. I tried doing the steps all over again and it worked this time, now transmission is working. I stopped at step logrotate.

    Now my problem is that in a day, the router hangs once or twice a day. Do you think this will be resolved by an additional power source for the HDD?

    Here's my setup. Asus wl-520gu, and external HDD - 2.5" IDE 60Gb.
