Linksys boxes without Linux

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingAccording to this article (from hw.no, only in Norwegian), Linksys is removing Linux on some wireless routers in order to save memory, and thereby cutting costs. Fortunately, you can still find the models with Linux inside, you will just ahve to look for the right model number. For example, the new WRT54G with Linux inside is called WRT54GL. If you just get the version without the 'L', check if it has version number 5 on the underside - then it is the non Linux version.

Quick tip: samba charset conversion

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingEvery Samba user knows that the global parameter client code poage = 850 (in smb.conf) helps conversion of special characters in file names when your Windows clients writes files on your Samba server. The reason is simple; this parameter is included with the sample smb.conf file provided with Samba.

If you haven't read the man page for smb.conf, you might not realize that there is another piece to the puzzle. For Samba to know what charset to translate from / to, you must tell it the char set of the server it is running on. This is done with the global parameter character set. If you are running Samba on a unix-ish machine which uses the ISO8859-1 charset, you should put character set = ISO8859-1 in the global section of your smb.conf file.

StompBox

  View Printable Version 
NetworkingIt's called a StompBox and billed as a "Mobile 3G/WiFi Router Project". It's a WWAN (Wireless Wide Area Network) router. So what does it do? In more human terms, it's a compact little box that gets data from cellular towers and re-shares it for multiple computers to use. Now with EDGE and other types of wireless broadband access available, this is a cool project.
