i had terrible trouble with at installer. and after searching for solutions and finding how many people couldnt get it working and how generally poor it seemed i ditched it and went for a manual method.

i take it you cant see any status at all from the mini usb?

thanks guys, nohup seems to be doing the trick.

reference the copy speeds ive used cp and rsync.

ive managed to get the speed up with 12mb/s but has anyone seen higher than this?
im sure people spoke of alot better speeds.

i guess its not really a huge issue, but i always like to get the most out of my stuff. Smiley

Shame my N wireless speed is still rubbish.

Got a couple of questions i hope someone can help with.

First of all, say im on SSH, doing some stuff to my sheevaplug, and i want to copy a 1.5tb hard drive to another.
If i send the command to do it, and i close SSH will the copy process be terminated too? If so, is there a way i can send the command to the sheevaplug so it carrys on after i disconnect?

Also, i get about 7mbs when i transfer between USB devices, is there any way to speed this up? It seems very slow. Id expect about 20mbs if this was on a pc... so can i get anywhere close to that?

nice speeds. Smiley

ive got my sheeva plug now, it was a bit of a nightmare to get it upgraded using that installer thing, it just wont work in linux or windows. so i did it all manually in the end.

On another note... plugged in on 100mbit ethernet cable i get 10mbit a sec from samba or there abouts.

Wireless N, connected at 300mbit sat next to the router..... 3.5mbit a second. Which is exactly the same as the nslu2. Seeing as all i ever really use is wireless it seems a bit of a disapointment.
 Obviously not the sheeva plugs fault, but i guess i can demonstrate now that a gigabit router would make no difference to my situation.

ive tried this and that to tweak my wireless network but no noticable luck.

what a shame.


on another note, what status monitor are you using?

cant help but feel ive been a little misunderstood... lol.
I know you cant get N speeds from a nslu2, but what i said is im not getting speeds faster than 100mbit on a 300mbit N connection. (laptop to laptop for example).
All i mean is that this N stuff seems to be a bit of a con really, you dont get close to 300mbit, tho its ok for getting wired speeds without a cable.

All i want from the N network is speeds to compare with a wired connection. Smiley

And yes, N routers with ADSL modems and gigabit ports are rare in UK at least.

i'll go for a sheevaplug i think, and hopefully i'll be able to get 9mbs on samba.

thanks for the response guys, given me something to think about Smiley

ideally id use linux file systems, but its not possible for all the drives.

tbh i cant see the need for gigbit ethernet for an N router, it may well say its connected at 300mbit but i get no better speeds than 100mbit cabled. N wireless seems to be a bit of a scam to be honest.

The N router i got was only 100mbit, and that was about 120, couldnt really find a gigabit one.

I think i probably will go for a sheevaplug, i hope its alot quicker than the nslu2 though Smiley

Hi all,

i was wondering if many of you have came from nslu2's?
I have one at the moment and i think its probably a bit slow for what i need.

Will i be disapointed with a sheevaplug?
At the moment i use the slug for samba to host 1.5tb hard drive (fat32), 1tb hard drive (ntfs but maybe ext3), 500gb hard drive (ntfs). Also use it for dyndns updates, and ftp server.

At the moment i get around 4mb a sec transfer rates over samba, will i see this get better on a sheevaplug?
(it will be hard wired into 100mbit port but serving to computers connected on N Wireless)

Also i take it its easy enough to install stuff like slimserver, proftpd just like the nslu2?

Thanks in advance.
