    I’m using Thibor’s 17rc3 @ my WRTSL54GS.

    I notice that international characters is a problem, at least when device combine the following conditions:
    connected to USB port + FAT32 formatted + FTP

    For instance, one file with the name:
    Also is impossible to upload by FTP a file with any international character by FTP to a FAT32 device @ USB port (only by network share and, in this case, will keep original name).

    There isn’t any problem with international character files to internal router memory. The same test file was sent to WRTSL using ftp (FTP’s root) , and kept original name. The problem was restricted to devices @ USB port + ftp transfer (I only tested flash memories with FAT32, formatted by router and my desktop).

    I don’t know if international character can be implemented in future Thibor’s version, but will be very userful to a lot of users.

    I'll take a look at this when i update the codebase but to my knowledge, charset support has not been added. i think it has been hardcoded to English(850 iirc)
