Re: Questions about firewall config (and a quick one about W

For Security - you're going to have to setup a lot of that stuff via the command line (putty ssh into the router and configure this)... Bummer! This should be a key feature request. Yes, it's great to have the nice GUI configuration of bandwidth allocation, but isn't a primary function of a router ...

Re: Gargoyle Router in Comparison to Commercial

There is not a solid firewall set, like those rules to block atacks ... ...enable/disable switches for things like SPI, DoS, UDP Flood, TCP-SYN Flood, and Ignore Ping from WAN... I don't immediately see any way to control these features through Gargoyle. Also no clear way to set up port filters for...

Re: Gargoyle Router in Comparison to Commercial

There is not a solid firewall set, like those rules to block atacks ... Good point! Although the OEM firmware native to the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND offers enable/disable switches for things like SPI, DoS, UDP Flood, TCP-SYN Flood, and Ignore Ping from WAN (in addition to the "Access Restrictions&q...

Re: Gargoyle Router in Comparison to Commercial

The open source nature of Openwrt means you enjoy the same benefit and risk as any other Open source software. OK, I see your point. But I have no experience with open-source software. I was hoping that somebody could either confirm or deny the claim, read on Wilders Security Forums, that open-sour...

Re: Gargoyle Router in Comparison to Commercial

Please post here if you find a review that answers your questions. Probably you already know this, but I did find two reviews of the router (m and m), but neither really addresses the security aspects.
