Yes, this is what I want to know ^

I have been needing an upgrade, but it works fine for now.
It is a modem + switch + wireless access point or better known as a "residential gateway". If you disable DHCP, it just becomes a switch + wireless access point.

Well, I think I have found some information on the subject.

Here: http://forums.untangle.com/showthrea...ighlight=samba

and Here: http://forums.untangle.com/showthrea...ighlight=Samba

So the answer to my final question of whether you can install Samba on the Untangle computer is a yes. Seems you are getting into a little more advanced stuff then install either of the applications separately, but it certainly appears possibly. This may be the thing that really pushes me to go ahead with the idea, because I only had enough left over hardware for box, file server or router. This way I might be able to accomplish both with the same hardware.

Some performance proof..... It looks like Comcast is throttling the network today. I was getting close to 30,000kps over the weekend.

that cant be right, otherwise people with ordinary stock comcast routers wouldnt be getting the speeds their getting, you ran the first test at a congested time, i doubt there will be any significant difference, considering the stock comcast routers pull off the full speed

2AM EST is congested time?

I know my average download and upload rate for the last few months.... and I smash them all with the custom router. I did the same test on last week and got the same results. Massive performance increase. I'm downloading 1.5MB/s of torrents and I can still play online FPS.

well thats poor for an expensive router, you get same upload as a dsl connection, did you test it through wireless? i get 3000 upload on a repeated signal through wireless, the comcast stock routers get the full comcast speed, you got 200kbps upload , your results are propaganda, otherwise noone would be getting their advertised speeds with the stock routers
post #188 of 262
I think what duckie may be trying to say is that he can be torrenting and play FPS where as with the comcast (stock) router he can't. He has also said he has had a speed increase at certain times.

Also 2AM is not congested time.
post #189 of 262
his first speedtest is probably with torrent lol, anyways nice upload

Ok.... Here is my network


Whenever I torrent, obviously the entire network takes a massive hit.

Will creating one of these custom routers and placing it between the modem and the router help make it so that when I torrent the entire network doesn't move as slow as a snail?! And some people (like my brother or even myself) can game online at the same time?
If so - I'm so in man. If not - what other changes need to be made?

I've compiled
Intel Celeron 1.8ghz
Gigabyte MicroATX
1GB of Kingston DDR2 800
2 of these EtherFast® 10/100 LAN Card

Will that all work? Someone recommended me the Etherfast cards a little ways back in the thread (needs to be repped) - so I would figure they work obviously.
