Hi, whats the output of these commands?

wc -l /proc/net/nf_conntrack


wc -l /proc/net/ip_conntrack

I just thought about the case when there is no conntracking, e.g. due to completely left out firewalling. I consider using netstat instead:

netstat -ntu 2>/dev/null | wc -l

i forgot to mention the used firmware: brcm-2.4.

using brcm47xx i get a connection count but WLAN is unusable on my little WRT54GL, so i switched back to brcm-2.4.

i have no '/proc/net/nf_conntrack'. here's the requested output:

wc -l /proc/net/ip_conntrack

265 /proc/net/ip_conntrack

netstat -ntu 2>/dev/null | wc -l

i fixed the problem on my router by changing /usr/lib/lua/luci/view/admin_status/index.htm:

i'm no expert in lua, so there might be a better solution than mine but it seems to work. i also changed 'sysctl' to 'sysctl -n' to get the value without the key.
