There have been a few comments scattered around regarding developing a replacement firmware for the NAS200. I thought it might be an idea to have a collective think about what we would like to achieve before doing too much work. I can see two possible paths to take: 1. Enhance the existing Linksys firmware to add additional capabilities - like what Jac has done with his initial efforts. or 2. Develop a completely new firmware from the ground up The new firmware path has some attractions in that the Linksys firmware does have some limitations and it is not entirely open source. Adding capabilities involves a few kludges to work around the limitations so it isn't going to be a 'standard environment'. However the low power of the NAS200's processor really does limit what is is suitable for. For anything that requires any amount of processing, a NSLU2 is much more suitable. Apart from having internal HDD support there isn't much advantage in using a NAS200 over a NSLU2. In this case, enhancing the Linksys firmware to add capabilities that enhance its usefulness as a NAS/Mediaserver would appear to be a more effective use of our time. Thoughts?
