NSLU2 to 350N help

    Hey guys,

    I just purchased the WRT350N, to replace my old WRT54G and NSLU2 devices.

    The NSLU2 is running Unslung V2.3R63-uNSLUng-6.8-beta
    on a Seagate 160gig external drive
    and I just purchased the 350n today, and haven't messed with the firmware yet.

    The problem I am having, the 350n is not recognizing the ext3 file format of the Seagate? I formatted it originally using the NSLU2 stock firmware, but I don't know if Unslung changed the file format of the drive, or what?

    I could erase the drive, I suppose, backing everything up, but I want to use the ext3 file system, instead of FAT32 or NTFS. Does the 350n support ext3? If it does, how do I format it in ext3 so the 350n recognizes it?

    Best I know the WRT350N does not support the ext3 file system.

    yeah, I just read that after doing a search in the forums.

    that is ok I guess, wish I could do a file copy from an ext3 to NTFS drive on the NSLU2 without having to copy to my local hard drive. The main reason I upgraded to the 350n in the first place, was so I wouldn't have to mess with communication with the hard drive at thse darn slow 10/100 speeds :( hehe

    I have a portable Maxtor I'm copying the files to now, but its too bad I can't connect it to the other port on the NSLU2 and copy the stuff over that way without erasing the portable maxtor first.

So far its taking me 14 hours to copy everything over 10/100 speeds :(
