I am thinking of putting in more ram in mine also.

Are you using it for couch pototato or sickbeard etc...Huh  Also I was going to use samba to file share.  What are your thoughts?

I wouldn't use full fat Ubuntu, the Unity DE will be far too bloaty for a little Revo.  I am using Xubuntu 16.04 x64, which is much lighter than actual Ubuntu.  I have upped my ram to 4GB and the machine works much better because of it.  The wifi on mine works perfectly, although I never use it, as already said wifi on a server is pointless, especially when it is an old Wifi g card.  Part of the attraction to this machine is it has full duplex gigabit ethernet.  I have no idea what sickbeard or couch potato are, so I can't help there.

I use NFS to share files, it is way much faster than Samba and is much more reliable too.  I used this guide...
