Re: Version error trying to load 1.9 on Archer C7 v2

This is odd. I flashed 1.8 over the same US version that is supposed to be non-flashable. TP-Link has stated they will no longer manufacture routers with firmware that can be replaced to comply with FCC rules. Their whole line will be locked down (until someone figures out a hack) from using 3rd par...

Re: Archer C7 5ghz poor connect speeds

I can't add value to this thread but I am pleased to see the 5ghz band connection speeds being addressed.

I'm not going to mess with my C7 using the command line as it's my only decent router. I've sold/loaned/traded my wdr4300s.

thanks for your work.

Which firmware for WRT54GL V1.1

I was hoping that 1.62 of Gargoyle would work but I'm not too sure from looking at the downloads.

Can someone advise me of the newest version of Gargoyle to work with the Linksys router I mentioned? And any special procs I need to follow to get a working flash?

TIA

Re: Archer C7 5ghz poor connect speeds

Terrific information.

I'll give it a go later today and post back my results.

Cheers

ETA:

Should I use the webui first in connection to set my ssids and whatnot, save that lot, then ssh and do my command lines?

Re: Archer C7 5ghz poor connect speeds

I read the wiki and gather I need to make an entry for a device to turn on the ac radio? I've never edited a Linux configuration file in my life. I'm wondering, is there a chance I might need to edit other configuration files for other features? I haven't checked out all the features of my C7 to see...

Archer C7 5ghz poor connect speeds

I flashed my new Archer C7 with 1.8.0 and after reboot and configuration all was working well. I use 5ghz exclusively and leave the 2.4ghz band for the family. Prior to flashing my Intel AC7260 equipped netbook would always connect to the Tplink stock firmware at 867mbps. Always. Things seemed a lit...

Re: Gargoyle USB UPS daemon

Of course. ROM. That explains why my 2nd router which was flashed with OpenWrt, multiple flashes of factory and ddwrt images and probably an image or two for one of my NAS boxes (J/K) did a Lazarus and rose from the dead after 10-15 minutes . It was pretty cool seeing my Gargoyle AP names, then a ge...

Re: Gargoyle USB UPS daemon

Thanks,

I'll give it a shot. What's the worst that can happen?

I destroy my out of warranty $60 router by issuing a retarded write command to destroy everything?

Gargoyle USB UPS daemon

In a nutshell, I'd like to have my router plugged into my USB APC UPS and have Gargoyle send shutdown commands to my NAS units when extended power goes out. All my NAS units are Linux based and I've gained root access to them. Be nice to send remote shutdown commands to running PCs as well but I run...
