    Hi folks,

    Just picked up my WRT54G last week, gotta say I love it. I have two concerns tho... I wrote a script to output some data from /proc/net/dev to another linux box, to pipe into mrtg for graphing. It involved a smallish 4 line script and a crontab of 2 lines ... after 4 days it ran out of memory (<2 megs) and started segfaulting! Any ideas? I eliminated the script entirely, now it just tftp's out the contents of /proc/net/dev to another linux box for processing...

    Secondly, I tried pptp today... works great! Only one concern, the load average on the box goes to like 1.66! The cpu load for pptp was 95-97% all the time (and I have a v2.0 box, with the 200 mhz processor!). Anyone else have these type of issues?

    Besides that, I gotta love this firmware ... just makes things more interesting!

    PPTP is very demanding on any CPU.
    3-4 clients on a 1 ghz will max it out easily iirc.

    At least you guys got it to work -- i still can't get pptp to work right on my Win2000 laptop.
