Re: Archer C7 V2 + Gargoyle 1.9.2 + USB tethering: SUCCESS

Has there been any movement on this? I've been frustrated of late with my ISP being in yo-yo mode (up/down/up/down...). The fallback I would like to use is to tether my Android phone to the router via one of it's USB ports (Archer C7 V2), or alternatively pop out the SIM, put it in a 4G USB modem (s...

Re: 1.12.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2020-March-02 06

Saving QOS again should fix the congestion control status being blank. Hey Lantis, thanks for the suggestion but no luck. I've enabled, disabled, tried different browsers no luck. I'm an old Unix/ASM hack so I can login to the router via root was wondering if there is anything I can check in /etc t...

Re: 1.12.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2020-March-02 06

Just did an update to this latest one and noticed a couple of curiosities (btw, I did an upgrade but did NOT preserve settings) Router is Archer C7 V2: Wifi works fine but the activity leds no longer display When I turned on QoS Download I noticed that the Congestion Control Status is blank. I remem...

Re: No internet

Thanks to Lantis, I think that may have been my problem. I had overlapping static and dynamic reservations. I've now corrected the problem and we'll see how it goes. So far as good.

Re: No internet

I've had this happen twice now on the same model router C7 V2. It was working fine and then it stops. No wired connection, no wireless either. Power cycle did not work. I had the problem with V1.11 Nov-14 from Show/Tell/Contribute. Finally got connected via a wired laptop and upgraded to 1.12 stable...

Works on my Archer C7 V2 with preserve settings. Once upgraded, I did have to complete a power cycle of the router to allow wired connections to connect.

Auto reboot causes wifi failure

I have setup my router so that it reboots at 3:00AM every day. I notice that most of the time it works fine. However, sometimes it looks like it's running (from the leds on the front panel) but I cannot connect to it via wifi. I need to power cycle it again and it comes back fine. I have noticed thi...

Re: 1.11.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2019-October-09 18

Thanks for the insights. Good logic as well. I have tried raw OpenWRT but I find the UI and setup overly complicated compared to Gargoyle. I also had problems getting a few things to work at all, so opt to stay with Gargoyle. Faster hardware is a good solution. At the present time what's the fastest...

Re: 1.11.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2019-October-09 18

Yes, I did review all of those but unfortunately, they do not help in answering my question. Given that Gargoyle uses OpenWrt, any improvements in performance will generally be down to changes to OpenWrt. I notice that the recent release of Gargoyle bumped OpenWrt to 18.06.4. This is fine but what I...

Re: 1.11.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2019-October-09 18

I'm currently using the following build 1.11.X (Built 20190706-1139 git@15070c8c) and I typically will only upgrade to a newer release if there is some "better" performance in terms of routing or in wifi performance on my Archer C7 V2. I do look at the release notes to try and determine th...
