    Hey guys,
    Just wandering if I am missing something else to setup to make telnet to work. I started it in the gui and I am trying to login to it. It will accept the l/p and then drop the connection. error is (Connection to host lost.) I changed the default password for the gui but for telnet it is still default.

    Another question is I have a 1gig dual channel usb flash drive and would like to load a web page from it. I have 2 wrt routers so I can dedicate the wrtsl5gs as a switch/web server and turn off the firewall. The other router is the wrt54gs v.3. How advanced can the web page be for the router to run it properly. I know it can be done. I seen Void man's web page.

    Thanks for your time

    Telnet problem

    I fixed the problem. I initially thought maybe the firmware didn't load properly so I reloaded again with no change in results. I tried other ways with no results so I went and loaded dd-wrt. DD-wrt worked but gave me other problems so I gave thibor another chance and flashed back. Now it works and everything is rock solid. Thanks for the response.

    Still wandering about creating a web server within the router that will load family photos etc. off the 1gig flash drive. Nothing fancy.

    that is the cause of your not being able to telnet into the box, the telnet password is the same as is used for the gui.
    with regards to the webserver idea, it is possible to do it from the command line using a different port number, but authentication is still required unless you download a mips compiled http server onto your flash drive and use that instead, which might not be such a bad idea.

    A response from the WRT god!!

    Thank you for your advice. I am not an experienced user since the last time I used linux was 7 years ago. So, that being said I am still lost as to how to create a web server. I don't expect you to hold my hand so I will being doing some research lol. The changing of the port from the command httpd sounds simple enough and might be the way to go.

    Thank you again for your response.
