Re: Wireless Bridge Repeater Questions

I would have thought the AP/Gateway IP should be set to the main router in that scenario. I've never tried it though, and would be good to hear your feedback.

DNS should be fine to leave as is, but setting 8.8.8.8 will work as well of course.

Re: How to setup Restrictions

You can try using the guest network feature, which isolates clients from LAN by default. I'm not 100% sure it will work in the AP Only configuration.

Re: Wireless Bridge/Repeater

If you could easily get a LAN cable to the kitchen, a dumb AP setup would be best. Otherwise, Wireless Bridge/repeater is needed to get them on the same network.

Re: Wireless access through OpenWRT

Typically you would turn off the wifi on the ISP router.
Otherwise you need different network names/passwords and only allow the kids to know the Gargoyle ones.

Re: Changing QoS limits depending on hour

Try your "few minutes in the future" experiment again, and make sure that you run

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/cron restart
so that the changes are picked up.

Make sure that the 2 bandwidth commands are at least 5 minutes apart when testing, as the qos restart script is not short.

Re: Migrating Gargoyle to OpenWrt

If you're already running Gargoyle, you can just sysupgrade to OpenWrt. Do not preserve settings.
You may need to initiate the sysupgrade from the command line if the GUI doesn't take it.

Re: Changing QoS limits depending on hour

Can you share what cron changes you made please? Will be easier to see where you started from. There's only 2 settings (in the same config file) you need to change, so that should be pretty straight forward. You also need to restart the qos service to get the full effect. The GUI should reflect the ...

Re: Help a newbie with a complicated case

Speed would be a little slower than OEM. The uplink band is also roughly cut in half as it is performing uplink and downlink duties. You can enter that command directly to try it. If it fixes your issue you should add it to a more permanent place so it is done automatically e.g. firewall.user or RC....

Re: 1.13.0.x gargoyle-ispy 2020-December-14 23

Some of our Polish friends discovered the common factor in the display issue with Bandwidth Distribution. I've just pushed a patch which should take care of it. Ultimately, it boils down to hostnames that are longer than 25 characters. This is allowed, but they are truncated for display purposes. Th...

Re: Help a newbie with a complicated case

The device is old and low spec. It wouldn't work with new versions of Gargoyle at all. You would be limited to 1.10 or earlier which all have will known security vulnerabilities. What you want to achieve isn't a "repeater". It's just joining a network as a wireless client and broadcasting your own n...
