    I just found in interesting problem in the 1.23 firmware.

    Two days ago we lost power at my house and the router was the only thing to power back up automatically. Several hours later we brought the rest of the computers up but the CIFS did not re-mount. I only discovered it a few minutes ago and I had to manually mount the CIFS client.

    The reason I find this interesting is that up till 1.23, the router would automatically re-mount the CIFS client when I powered the machine back up. It seems that it does not in the latest firmware. I have it set to save the bandwidth info on an hourly basis so my logs are FULL of this:

    Jan 28 20:53:25 The House user.err rstats[110]: Problem loading /cifs1/tomato_rstats_0013100e874c.gz. Still trying...

    I know my machine was up at that time, yet it did not find it.

    To remount it was simple, I just clicked the save button and it found and mounted the share and all is well again.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue? I like things to recover gracefully from a power outage and this is not gracefull at all.
