Good to know. I'm getting ready to install YAMon on my R7800. _________________ Routing:.......Asus RT-AX88U (Asuswrt-Merlin 384.14) Switching:....Netgear GS608_V3 & GS605_V4, TrendNet TEG-S82G & TEG-S50G
Good to know not every atheros unit has this restriction. The Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H comes with ext2 and vfat support as far as I can tell from the available kernel modules. My other Buffalo Router, based on a Broadcom Chipset, has more file-system options available, too.
Why aren't these kernel modules included on the WZR-HP-AG300H?

It is all based on Flash space availability. Kernel modules take up space and adding more support on an 8MB flash is hard when a lot of it is used up by core kernel modules for the wireless, etc. _________________ Before asking a question on the forums, update dd-wrt: Where do I download firmware? I suggest reading it all.
Some dd-wrt wiki pages are up to date, others are not. PM me if you find an old one, I am trying to update them.

Good to know. I'm getting ready to install YAMon on my R7800.
I recommend ext4 when setting things up for YAMon. In the past, when my USB drive was formatted to ext2, I occasionally ended up with a badly corrupted USB drive if there was an unexpected reboot (power failure). I have *not* had that problem since moving to ext4.
However, some variants have removed support for ext 3 and/or ext4 so that the firmware fits onto routers with limited memory. In that situation, ext2 may be fine but caveat emptor...
