    is it possible to use the samba/automount function to host a website, for example point the automount to the folder that you have your index.html file in and go to http:\\x.x.x.x\smb\index
    or am I just missing the whole ideal of samba/automount?
    I have seen voidmain's page and am interested in doing a whole website from my WRT54G as well, could someone tell me how?

    People - The WRT54G is a router - a low end processor without alot of memory.. Take an old PC from your dead PC file, put Linux on it and host your web server. Let the router be a router...

    or you could just let a router host the page like i did here

    just load the html pages and the picutres that go along with it into the smba in the /tmp/smbshare folder in the router using winscp.

    or do what dellsweig said get an old pc which uses a lot more energy needs antivirus software and needs to be mantained and that all coasts money. or just load the page in the router for free and call it a day.
    i have had about 900 hits on my page and the router is still going strong. remember to disable "block request" or somthing in the oruters firewall. and change the remote managment port to 5000

    and that is it

    thanks for the quick reply, is there any way at all that I could brick the router using winscp to upload the pages?

    so if you upload to much the router will just reboot.
    for me dd-wrt pre4 was the best. dd-wrt pre5 was to slow. and has a big memeory leak. so if you have dd-wrt pre5 the router will run out of memeory and will reboot and the web pages will be lost. and this will happen every 24hrs or so. i have no p2p traffic either.
