Re: 60% slower dl speeds when going through router

Thanks for the info on reverting back to stock and for overclocking. I took the lesser risk and reverted.

When I am able to obtain a router with faster hardware, I'll probably be back. That's why last time I added something , albeit small, to the tip jar.

Thanks, everyone.

Re: 60% slower dl speeds when going through router

Thank you very much for the very informative replies. I guess I now need the procedure for going back to the latest stock firmware in order that I can better utilize the higher bandwidth that I'm paying for each month. I recall reading somewhere that I can't simply flash directly back to stock.

60% slower dl speeds when going through router

On my TP-Link WDR3600 v1 running 1.8.1, the speeds are approximately 60% faster (112Mbps vs 180Mbps) when I bypass the router. QOS is disabled. Other connected devices include network printer, VOIP adapter and cell phone. All of which are idle. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Disappointing wireless data transfer speeds on WDR3600

After reading a few articles, it would appear that maybe I'm now actually closer to real life wireless data transfer rates for my given configuration. Therefore, I'm going to stay here for now. I just left a little Tip in the Gargoyle donation jar. Wish I could have left more. Perhaps I will be able...

Re: Disappointing wireless data transfer speeds on WDR3600

Successfully upgraded to 1.8.1. There appears to be a consistent improvement of about 33% for the data transfer rate on the 2.4 Ghz device as the data transfer rate is now about 48 Mbps (up from 36 Mbps). The data transfer rate on the 5 Ghz device is about the same at 70 Mbps. The data transfer rate...

Perhaps I'll try 1.8.1 being that it is currently listed as the most stable version available and report back. Thank you for the suggestion.

Disappointing wireless data transfer speeds on WDR3600

Running Gargoyle 1.7.2 on TP-Link WDR3600. My 2.4 Ghz device reports a link speed of 72 Mbps and the data transfer rate with an Internet-based test server is about 36 Mbps. The 5.0 Ghz device reports a link speed of 300 Mbps and the data transfer rate is about 70 Mbps. I have used at least 2 differe...

Re: 1.7.1 How to diagnose bootloops (cause of reboot)

After approximately 45 days without any problem with 1.7.1 running on my WDR3600, I added an access restriction to the firewall to block a remote IP address. That's when I first encountered this "bootloop" problem. Even after having removed the rule, the problem continued. The typical memo...

Re: Successfully flashed a router? Tell Us!

Successfully flashed a TP-Link TL-WDR3600 V1 running stock 3.14.1 firmware to Gargoyle 1.7.1. With the exception of maybe slower wireless connections and lower reported signal strength from devices located in a nearby bedroom, everything else seems to be running smoothly. Perhaps a little tweak will...
