Way too many variables there for us to be helpful. :)

What OS are you running? What OS is your "main" PC? Why not just put the server on a wired connection? Is your "main" PC directly connected to a cable modem or some other ISP-provided thing? Or do you have a proper LAN setup?

What *I* did, to connect a wired device upstairs to the LAN without drilling holes, as buy a cheap 4-port wireless router that I knew I could put the Tomato firmware on. Then I configured that router to act as a wireless bridge in client mode, that is, it used the wireless connection as a bridge for the wired side.

The compiler told you what the problem was.

The variables in question are set, but then never referenced in any way that would make use of their values... hence a waste of CPU cycles.

Check the code to make sure the act of setting them doesn't have some side-effect that *IS* needed (bad programmers often make functions set global variables while doing other things). If so, and you don't want to refactor the code, you can fudge it by adding another useless line of code to make it "use" the variable in question.

If they really aren't used for anything, comment them out (both the lines that set them AND the variable declarations).

If it's stock SmaugFUSS 1.9, I have a git repository that's fixed all that and also added I3 support, since IMC is a dead horse these days.

Figured it would be an issue with the compiler changes lol. I'll get around to updating the packages to compile cleanly in it soon :)
