Re: DNS software

actually, I've been using 'lan' instead of 'localnet' since it seems to not work well with MS Windows and Apple's Bonjour.

You would, if you're still using an 802.11g AP.

Re: Deathly Slow Speeds as a Media NAS

Don't use 802.11g. It's half-duplex and at best you'll only get around 22Mbps.
802.11n with its aggregation/block-acknowledgement will give you a much higher throughput.
(Though you'll never get 480Mbps as you wish on a RPi as you would get CPU-bound).
The snag is you'll need to replace your AP.

Re: Synchronize RPi with another computer over FTP

Also, since rsync can just sync incremental changes only, the 2nd sync onwards is hardly going to take 5 hours. A weekly rsync backup cron job for my desktop usually takes less than 30 minutes.

Re: Pi Network Host

.local will work for linux/win/android clients, but conflicts with Apple's Bonjour. Use .localnet (or whatever) for you local domain in dnsmasq if you're going to use Apple devices as well. I think this should do: $ sudo vi /etc/dnsmasq.conf local=/localnet/ domain=localnet expand-hosts $ sudo /etc/...

I didn't realize the original question was to do with achieving gigabit throughput on the Pi. Better use those routers with specialized chips.

I have never done what your try to achieve, but have experience with both bridging and dhcp. You already know that you need to install the software bridge - you end up with something like br0. On this software bridge you connect both wired/wireless I/F (eth0/wlan0). Both having different IP address ...

Re: high speed wifi module (non-USB) ?

WiFi is half-duplex, so your throughput will suffer no matter how fast your 802.11n adapter is. I think the Pi's interfaces are USB 2.0 from memory, so if you attach a Gigabit Ethernet USB adapter you should be able to reach 250Mbps or so. I have an ASIX chip-based GbE USB interface I could try out ...

A good write-up indeed. Working very nicely on my Pi with Rasbian.

BTW, UPnPlay is a nice dlna client for the Android. I use it for playing my audio collection off the Pi. I wish there was a free and decent dlna client player for IOS. Most I've tried are all cripple-ware.

Use isc-dhcp-server if you want to use all of the flexible options which dhcp provides, such as the vendor specific extensions. I don't believe that dnsmasq provides that level of features. [edit] Oops, I take that back. dnsmasq does give you dhcp options (via --dhcp-option=vendor). The syntax is a ...

You could run squid proxy in transparent mode, and add squidguard so that http traffic to non-so-socially-accepted web sites can be block by the proxy.
