Re: WR-1043ND V2 wifi problems?

A bit late with an answer. Max download with the broadband I have is 40Mbit. That's the highest my broadband will go, unless I upgrade to 1Gbit that passes my front door.

Re: WRT1200AC configuration restore fails

Well bugger me. it's done it again. Been running 1.11.0 fine also with OpenVPN for months. Yesterday, I decided to close down the direct open ports for various things, and use OpenVPN to access the LAN. I disabled and removed two open ports, saved the config and checked. Ohhh great scot. Only half o...

Re: VPN Server

Ah, OK. Sounds good. trying to watch UK TV streams whilst out the country but not in UK/EU area. so Geo blocked. Have tried Winscribe VPN, which is great with the 10GB monthly free allowance, but VPN blocked by iplayer. TVcatchup works OK, but i'm struggling with buffering due to, no doubt, congesti...

VPN Server

Excuse a stupid question. If I run a VPN server, do I get the use of normal access and VPN access, or is the router completely bound to VPN only access to LAN equipment? Can I dedicate a Network port to VPN, and the rest Non VPN or are they all bound to VPN use? What I want to do, is come in on a VP...

Re: WRT1200 help needed.

It crossed my mind about the firmware switching over. Pity there is no indication by LED, which one is in use. What I might do when she's there, is to whatsapp me a video of the startup light sequence, but there is little coverage in the comms location. I suppose a redundant LED could be enabled to ...

Re: WRT1200 help needed.

Thanks the reply. She assured me it was only a second. Either way, nothing can be done, so servers and other systems are down for the next three weeks or so. Don't completely follow why the BB would have wiped the config or firmware as it's so easy to fumble. Would have thought the reset button woul...

She used the Blue Button and and what with various power restarts with on/off switch and power cable dis/reconnection, to try and get internet working again, the router ...

Re: WRT1200AC configuration restore fails

Looks like I have managed to correct the problem. After reflashing with Linksys firmware, I waited for a few days and flashed with 1.9. Entered all the settings again and waited a few more days after proving the settings survived a cold and hot restart. Waited a few more days and upgraded to 1.10. A...

Re: WRT1200AC configuration restore fails

Well for some reason, looks like I either reloaded Gargoyle WRT1900 firmware, or its been like that since I first loaded Gargoyle onto the WRT1200. Either way, that's been corrected and now have the correct firmware. BUT... Linksys firmware loads, runs, backups and restores fine. Buggered if I can g...

WRT1200AC configuration restore fails

Hello all. Device Name:Gargoyle Gargoyle Version:1.10.0 Model:Linksys WRT1900ACv2 Changing a couple of settings and saving them, caused my WRT1200AC to completely loose its configuration. Fine I thought, i'll just restore from my last backup of a few months ago. Well this didn't go as planned and ca...
