How to transfer files from PC to router's RAM

    My router: WRT54GS V3. Previously, I used the FW with USB. So I can create ftp server in the router to transfer some files from PC to router's RAM.

    Now I flashed my router to shibby (tomato-ND-1.28.5x-109-Max.trx). It doesn't support USB. Also ftp server is not supported. It's a great trouble for me to transfer files from PC to router's RAM. Though I can use cifs client, it's still not convenient because my IP maybe changed. Even a fixed IP is configured, sometimes I'm in the office and connect to router by VPN, my IP still changed.

    Please don't suggest me flash the FW with USB. I have tried. But /jffs is invisible in USB FW. I need /jffs as well.

    So is there any good ways to transfer files from PC to router's RAM? Thanks!

    Buy a new router with USB is your best option.

    Any solution w/o extra cost?

    Turn ssh on then use scp ?

    Is it feasible in windows? For ftp, I just open "my computer", then type ftp://192.168.1.1/ in the address bar. Then copy/paste any file in it.

    For ssh, how to do it?

    Or you can share a directory on your PC, mount the CIFS share on the router, and just put whatever files you want to access in the directory.

    That's exactly what I'm doing now. But the problem is: my IP maybe changed. If I'm at home, a fixed IP can be configured, OK. But sometimes I'm in the office and connect to router by VPN, my IP can be random. Because VPN client's IP couldn't be configured as fixed.
