Another thing is your configuration.
That message indicates that your settings may not be correct.

How do you have the archer plugged in physically to the rest of your network (what cables go between what devices and which ports on those devices). And which connection setting are you using?

When I got the error, it was setup as an AP on the network, so Gateway, AP mode.
One LAN cable goes to switch, another goes to a laptop.
Both wired and wireless Internet access worked fine.

Router cannot download plugins, that's it.

I got the new 09/19/18 firmware on there and it contains only the basic plugins, no new ones vs the older version here http://lantisproject.com/gargoyle_1.11.x/ar71xx/gargoyle_1.11.x-ar71xx-generic-archer-c7-v4-squashfs-factory.bin.
I have it now setup as a Gateway and it's still not getting the plugins but I don't get the Internet Access error any longer.

I guess I will just wait for a release? Do we have any idea how far off we are on that? Also, is this Lede or Chaos Calmer?

Thanks for your help!

For the custom builds you need to add the plugin repository manually.
I’d wait for RC3 at this stage because I made an error in handling the menus on the device, but if you add this:

Code: Select all

http://lantisproject.com/gargoyle_1.11.x_rc2/ar71xx/ath10k-large

You will get a list of plugins to install.

I don’t exactly have a timeframe as I don’t control releases. But it is close to ready.
It is based on Openwrt 18.06.

Thanks, Lantis. That works great.

So I can help you guys with testing on my TP-Link Archer C7 V4. I also have a WNDR3700V2 I can test with. Additionally, I have a Netgear R7000 but I don't think that there are any Gargoyle builds for ARM.

I'm not a coder, but I'm happy to help any way I can. Host builds, simple scripting? That button thing was really easy to figure out. It would be nice if Gargoyle had that covered.

A generic button management page would be cool. But it has to work on all devices so needs to be quite robust.

If you think you can assist, by all means check out the source code:
