Everything you need should be on that page.

Pay attention to this:

Information on the factory-standard NETGEAR firmware

The stock firmware is actually a modified version of an older OpenWRT release. NETGEAR has provided partial sources, but the firmware can be tricky to build.

Some instructions for building (and rooting around in) the default firmware can be found here. This may also be helpful in attempts to duplicate the proprietary firmware in the fully open-source OpenWRT distribution:


So, you are really still running an upgraded stock firmware
if you are using OpenWRT / Gargoyle
:twisted: Soylent Green Is People! :twisted:
2x Asus RT-N16 = Asus 3.0.0.4.374.43
2x Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH V1 A0D0 = OpenWRT Trunk 42220
Linksys E3000 = Toastman Tomato USB 1.28.7505
TP-Link WR1043ND V1.8 - Gargoyle 1.6.X
Engenius - ESR900 Stock 1.2.2

thanks! but i think that this is not the answer i was searching....

i am using gargoyle 1.5 now and i want to go back and install the official firmware. (because gargoyle does not have wireless scheduler)

So i want to try dd-wrt

Why restore the Netgear firmware first? Can't you go directly from Gargoyle to DD-WRT? I seem to remember that I did, some time ago.

because i tried that without success.

system upgrade , selected ddwrt and clicked ok....nothing appened, only a text: upgrading router....and gargoyle is still on 3700

I do not hate gargoyle, i simpy need wireless scheduler (turn on/off on specified time)

Turn off the router.
Turn it back on while pressing the little 'reset' button at the bottom.
Keep the button pressed for about 45-60 seconds, until the power light start blinking green.
Now the router is in 'recovery' mode and you can tftp the stock firmware image to it.
You'll have to give your PC a static address of 192.168.1.2.
