I've got a NSLU2 running unslung 2.12-beta. On my slug I'm running
Twonky 2.4, which is serving a D-Link DSM-320 running firmware 1.04. I
have a wireless "g" network. My setup is working "acceptably" well.
The biggest problem I'm having is keeping the wireless connection
stable. My office and family room are at the exact opposite ends of a
2800 sq. foot home and the wireless signal sucks in my family room. As
for the media server/player. It works great. I use my personal pc with
a tuner card upstairs as my DVR, screw you TIVO. I'm also serving up my
400 cd collection, and some of my favorite internet radio stations like
www.radioparadise.com without any problem. I think the DSM-320 is still
a couple of firmware releases from being ready for prime time but I
think it will be greatly stabilized in the next 3-6 mos.
