I have never tried OpenWRT, but my general impression is that using it is more involved than using dd-wrt because you are really building a custom router OS for yourself using a large kit of components. (Anyone?)
But why can't I stick to file sharing on my named hard drive? Every time I hit apply settings and save the hard drive I named will disappear .... This has been a problem from the beginning.
Do I just have to say that I did not succeed and give up?
I've had so far satisfied with the DD-WRT software. But this NAS problem has made me nervous this week when I tried to get a shared external hard drive.
Maybe I just have to give up on this?
I build a FreeNAS server and then I have enough space my data.
I have now connected the external USB hard disks normally the computer's USB port.
I'm really annoyed when I couldn't share an external hard drive using DD-WRT software.
I now implemented my external USB hard drive share through Windows using the folder sharing service! This does the same thing as sharing via DD-WRT.
In addition to that, I will build a FreeNAS server. My friend is bringing me 8 hard drives this week.

The latest one is too large for partition two. It has to be installed in partition one. See the Cliff Notes sticky at the beginning of this forum for how todo that. _________________ Six of the Linksys WRT1900ACSv2 on r38159 (solid), r39144 (very solid), r40009 (solid), and r40784 (trying out).
