Installed & Tested Routers.

Introduction

There are a lot of routers out there and manufacturers are always changing their product lines so it is not possible to provide an exhaustive list of routers that Gargoyle will run on.

Below is a list generated by Gargoyle users and semi-maintained of routers they have personally used with Gargoyle and found to work.

If your router does not appear on the list you should check out the supported hardware list over at OpenWRT.org. If your router appears in that list then chances of Gargoyle running on your router are much improved.

To run the latest versions of Gargoyle your router should have at least 4MB of FLASH and 32MB of RAM. Older versions of Gargoyle work with routers that only have 16MB of RAM, but the latest versions will run extremely slowly on these older devices. If you have one of these devices you may want to try running Gargoyle 1.2.5, which has a smaller memory footprint.

Additionally, be aware that in order to support USB functionality your router must have at least 8MB of FLASH. Some routers have USB ports but only 4MB of FLASH space, which isn't enough for the USB support implemented in Gargoyle.

Most consumer routers are not supported by Gargoyle, so if you just got back from the electronics store with your brand new router you are likely out of luck. The better approach is to do some research and buy a router that has been tested and is known to run Gargoyle.

Atheros AR71XX Routers:

Routers with this architecture are the best-supported routers that run Gargoyle.

There are typically two files available for each of these routers. One “factory” file should be used to intall from the original factory firmware, while one “sysupgrade” file should be used to upgrade an existing Gargoyle/OpenWrt installation.

Broadcom Routers:

This is an older architecture, and may be a bit slow when run with the latest versions of Gargoyle.

Note that some of the models listed below have only 16MB of RAM. These models are supported in older versions of Gargoyle, but will run very slowly with the latest releases.
