    Wanted to put this subject matter in its own thread.

    teddy... has put out a version with a dlna server? Yes, that's a question.

    Please tell me more. What is it serving from? A USB drive attached to the router or any storage that is available on the network?

    Are there screen shots some where of it, config, etc.?

    In other words, "Need more input"....

    Thanks. Will poke around.

    Only in versions that have router with USB port?

    In my builds it's only in USB-enabled K26 editions. Don't know about Victek's for sure, but most probably the same. The "Mini"DLNA server is actually HUGE (~3MB), so it's only possible to include it for routers with 8MB flash.

    And if you have a router with 8MB flash, nothing prevents you to use USB-enabled firmware even if it doesn't have a USB port. Just disable USB support in the GUI, and it will not cause any overhead since no USB drivers will be loaded in that case. And yes - you can use the media server to stream files from CIFS mounts...
