This is an upgrade from a relatively fast router DGL-4300. From experience, this gaming router had outperformed my WRT54GS with DD-WRT.


Let me tell you..... customer routers are AWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I haven't done much testing just yet but browsing is diffently improved. I can open like 20 content-rich links at once and they all finish in less than 5s. The old setup would have taken 10-20s. I'll try to post pics and some benchies tomorrow.
ill be happy when someone makes a step step dummies guide of how to DD-WRT their own WRT54GS....hint hint hint...................

I think Lifehack posted a guide to DD-WRT, and one to use Tomato too

Probably going to change my server setup, use a really light client for the main os and just vm a bunch of servers, much easier to fix things that way since if I screw up a vm linux server I can just restore a saved state lol.
Curious has to how much the vm router is using the processor. I ask this because I would run this on my folding machine, which is currently running vm linux smp on 1 core and then GPU folding on the other core.
Just curious how much this might hurt folding on that rig.

Well I had an xp pro vm and the untangle vm running on a vista machine and the cpu load was about 25% on a quad. So I would assume it would use around 50% of a cpu, when under load. The vista box was idle. The load is going to vary depending on network traffic, low traffic means low cpu usage and vice versa.

The only trick is remembering which nic is attached to what.
Would you mind throw up a guide on how to bridge the VMWave VM and creating a VR?

You got up it and running? What's your hardware?

Is it noticeably faster?

Hm.... this sounds incredibly interesting, and I think I might try it.

I've got an old HP PC lying around with a P4 3.0GHz, 1 GB RAM, 160GB HDD. Only problem is that it only has one on-board NIC. However, my Home 2Wire DSL modem did come with a NIC - although the quality is questionable.

Maybe this would improve my wireless connection on all my devices? (4 laptops & a PS3).

I'm running the Windows install so no dedicated hardware ATM..

I'm using their Re-Router build and it's way good and flexible.

Per my RAVE thread, about you and this product..

I know DuckieHo had a thread about it but it's buried and this thing is worth mentioning again!

I'm not using it as he is with a custom hardware setup for it but using their Re-Router technology.

Installed it on my XP desktop and it's seamless in a VMWare Virtual Machine.. Even the base configuration is solid and was shocked when my wife, on her PC on our small LAN, came to me griping about some website that was blocked I checked and YEP Untangle blocked some spam/phishing website she got in an email...

Seems she saw a good email advertisement for something and even tho I tell her (and she knows) NOT to click through emails that are unsolicited she did this time and this thing caught it just running on MY DESKTOP!

Logs confirm it and again this thing is sweet as silk.. A definate MUST SEE for those who have multiple PC's and want more control over what is done on them (and no, no NET NAZI for me just 2 kids underage and a wife who doesn't always think )

www.untangle.com

+Reps for Duckie once I find his thread..
