While my Linksys WRT32XB is amazing at network routing, it's lack of a media sharing server has been a sore spot. Today I discovered that will no longer be the case, as a whole new world of SSH configuration was made known to me. After following this article, I discovered I only needed three lines total to enable a DLNA server on my router:

ssh root@192.168.0.1
root@ATOMIC: opkg update
root@ATOMIC: opkg install minidlna

you'll need to configure where it should look for media with the following command:

root@ATOMIC: vim /tmp/minidlna.conf

A note that may hopefully help any fellow WRT32XB DLNA server hopefuls is to force a rescan after it's installed. You can do this by running "ps" and finding the process id that minidlna is running under, then type "kill ###" where ### is the process id. After that you can force the rescan with this:

root@ATOMIC: kill 12924
root@ATOMIC: /usr/bin/minidlna -R -f /tmp/minidlna.conf

It's important you include the -f so it knows the config file to use when it rescans. You can see from my minidlna log where it initially found 0 files, and when it actually found them on the forced rescan. If you see "finished (0 files)!" try the rescan line above.

After spotting Xbox 360 Launch Team Xboxes on eBay for over $1k, then spotting Xbox One Launch Team Xboxes on eBay for under $300, I decided I could fool myself into believing I was making an investment and bought two. While one has a stained controller, and the other has some rough plastic wear, I'm encouraged by my neighbor who says he can polish the plastic smooth and hopefully bring it back to pristine. In reality it's purely fanboy motivated, but I also pretend I'm making a long term investment.

It was only a matter of time before I decided to torture myself with another trip to the attic, this time to give my projector network cable some company. My WRT32X sends sufficient signal to cover all wireless Xboxes, but two of them are next to interior walls and were begging for network drops. After an hour of cursing and leg cramps, I now have only one remaining Xbox that still relies on wireless signal (the one on an exterior wall). My new attic switch is hopefully the last thing I install in that cursed area of my house. Oh hey, it's time for an updated network topology.

Today my Xbox(s) gain mouse/keyboard support, so I thought it was appropriate to catch them all updating together. Total update was less than 500MB, so whatever magic they have now wasn't very heavy.

Not satisfied with my NEST thermostats perfect operational record, I decided it was time to complicate my life with a less popular, less supported but much better looking smart thermostat. Enter the GLAS. I knew it was Windows 10 IOT based, but you couldn't really tell until it prompted me for my Microsoft login and then of course the Cortana integration also gave it away. It reported as "Windows Phone" to my router, so clearly the remains of that ecosystem have found a new home in this thermostat. My Microsoft fanboy satisfied, I quickly learned how limited it is compared to the NEST, save for the awesome touchscreen and air quality monitoring. Since I'm not a thermostat power user it suits my needs, but definitely a step down in terms of features from the NEST. Hopefully that's rectified by future software updates because it looks amazing.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 10-22-2018 Wired Network Goes Pure CAT6 View Webcam for 10-22-2018 ADD A COMMENT
Tired of wireless connection drops with my solar controller, and still trying to figure out a solution for my security camera DVR when the power is out, I decided it was time to make a proper networking solution. I routed all the outside wires that run upstairs and to my office into the garage, and ran wires from the solar controller and security camera DVR. I then ran an extension cord from the security camera DVR UPS to power the new switch that all 4 cables now plug into. Now I'm 100% proper CAT6 cabled to all my wired devices, with no more powerline adapters. I was so excited I immediately drew a network topology.
