    i own an asus rt-n66u with an internal sd card (32go SDHC) in fat32
    i wonder if i can format this sd card as jffs or jffs2.
    Because i try to get the maximum performance with the better life for this sd card.

    Is it a good idea ? And if yes, how can i do that ?
    Is the samba sharing work with jffs ?

    just format SD card to ext2. This will be IMO the best choice.

    I see a performance test wich show that fat32 have better perf than ext2.

    But i don't know if this test is really good and i can't find other good tests.
    Can you tell me if etx2 is really a better choice than fat32 ?

    Ext2 will be better unless the card will be passed back and forth between the router/linux boxes and a windows machine, in which case FAT32 would be reasonable.

    I recommend ext2, because then you can use it to setup Optware or Entware (this is what I did with my development RT-N66U).

    Do not pick FAT32. Go with ext2 or ext3 (your choice -- do not ask which to go with, go read and reach a conclusion yourself). FAT32 will cause you problems especially in the case where you want to use something like Entware -- FAT32 lacks the proper filesystem attributes (owner/group, permissions, etc.) necessary for operation. Just use ext2/ext3 and be done with it.
