Is MIPS linkstation 250GB fast enough for slimserver?
- I've heard a few stories that connecting slimserver on an LSII to a squeezebox was rather slow
and the songs would "hiccup" due to this. I want to hear if this is what you all have found (or
not) and what your setup is.
- I've got a 160 GB MIPS Linkstation with reflashed firmware hosting
slimserver just fine over 11 Mbps wifi... Once the slim server is done
scanning I never get dropout, even when doing large file transfers
over the network to the linkstation. I will say that the Linkstation
is underpowered for processor intensive things like serving up
graphics. So if album art and using the web interface are important to
you, you may want to go with turning an old PC into a server.

- I was able to improve throughput by hacking a binary from Buffalo. That hack allows Samba to work much more efficiently. The problem is with their Samba client. It does not currently support a dynamic window size. This makes file transfers a bit choppy.
