Gargoyle 1.11.0 Release Candidate 5
I intend for this version to become the official 1.11.0. Once it is out, I will continue to work on bugs as they come up. The current plan is to get it released in time for Christmas (pending Eric's availability).

You are recommended to NOT preserve settings when upgrading to this build. You do so at your own risk.

http://lantisproject.com/gargoyle_1.11.x_rc5/
Alix - now included as part of x86
AR71XX - Available
Atheros - Available
BRCM47xx - Available
Mvebu - Available
Ramips - Available
x86 - Available

Packages are included in the above links and can be added as repositories to the Plugins page. It is important that you add both the normal repository and the kernelspecific repository. It is also important that you only add the repository for the profile that your router is built for. If you are unsure, you can check the Plugins page to see.

Devices with 4MB of flash memory are now not supported.
**IMPORTANT**
Devices with 8MB of flash have had their firmwares stripped to the bare minimum to allow them to be continued to be supported. It is recommended that after installing, you plug in a USB stick, format it, and set it up for use with Gargoyle either as an external plugin_root or as extroot. You can then reinstall the missing functionality from the plugin repository.
New plugins that you may wish to install are:
- plugin-gargoyle-ddns
- plugin-gargoyle-qos
- plugin-gargoyle-upnp
- plugin-gargoyle-usb-storage-full
- plugin-gargoyle-wol

Changes since 1.11.0 RC4

Code: Select all

* Fix usb share password generation on all targets
* Re-add arping utility to all targets
* Update Kernel to 4.9.138 and 4.14.82
* Fix CVE-2018-19630 in uhttpd
* Update to latest mt76 and mwlwifi drivers


Changes since 1.10.0

Code: Select all

* Update to Openwrt 18.06 branch (Kernels 4.14.82 and 4.9.138)
* Add x86 profile
* Fixes to Samba network sharing
* Fixes to Tor (server config)
* Timezone changes (add Iran, rearrange Brazil, realign Turkey, fix regional server pools not updating)
* Fix button handlers for Archer series routers
* Add Quad9 DNS
* Fix Connection -> Basic page for devices with no wireless capabilities
* Add custom month bandwidth monitor (for aligning to ISP billing date)
* Fixes to restrictions module (not working on a single IP and not whitelisting URLs)
* Rework of OpenVPN config handling (certificates can now be permanently revoked. Disabled certificates will not be able to be connected with, but can be reinstated). Also add ability to generate single .ovpn file as config. Add new config options to assist mobile devices. Default cipher updated to more secure version
* New QoS default ruleset as per forum input
* QOSMON v2.3 with improved handling of dropped pings, smoother control algorithm and more user information displayed. Button added to reset the Fair Link Limit back to initial values
* Fixes to custom MAC Address setting not sticking
* Various GUI updates and cleanups
* Update DDNS Cloudflare configuration to handle new upstream API (you need to install a Gargoyle plugin to enable this now)
* Add HTTPS sniffing capabilities to Web URL Monitor and Restrictions sections
* New Theme "Flat Blue"
* Layer7 functionality disabled throughout firmware (it may return later...)
* Add GeoIP wifi country setting to GUI (with very specific conditions. You may only set this setting ONCE, and some users may never see this option if they do not meet certain regulatory requirements)
* Changes to Connected Hosts page (shows guests and upstream client connections separately)
* Allow filtering of Connection List page
* Translation updates for many languages
* Major effort to reduce firmware size to maintain smaller device compatibility (sorry, 4MB devices are not salvageable!)
* Fix WOL list being filled with unreachable entries
* Fixed email plugin not working
* Fix WOL list being filled with unreachable entries
* Changed startup order of minidlna and usb_storage to try to prevent minidlna not finding external media directories
* Update ramips default profile to 1.11.x codebase
* Separate usb-storage into 2 plugins. The "noshare" variant does not include SMB/CIFS/NFS/FTP support. To regain these, install plugin-gargoyle-usb-storage-full
* Separate DDNS into a plugin
* Separate QoS into a plugin. This also removes the ability to "throttle" quotas, leaving only the option to fully block devices once reaching the quota. This functionality can be restored by installing plugin-gargoyle-qos
* Separate WOL into a plugin
* Separate UPnP support into a plugin
* Update Atheros target to 1.11.x
* Update Alix target to 1.11.x (and merge with x86 as a new "alix" subprofile
* Fix plugins not showing up in menus on default installation
* x86 targets should now auto configure their Ethernet switches
* Update to latest mt76 and mwlwifi drivers
* Switch to a single SSL library to reduce firmware size
* Rework small profiles to be even smaller, allowing us to support more devices
* Much much more!

Can settings be kept when upgrading from RC4 to RC5? Or at least restored?

As of mid-2018, OpenWrt works on it with most features, except for the 5GHz radio. The open-source driver for wireless (MT76) is significantly unstable, causing disconnects and (infrequent) lock-ups.

https://openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tp-link_archer_c20_v4


It meets the requirements for support, but the 5GHz radio will not work. Do you plan on using it? Otherwise, sticking with the stock firmware for now is advised.

It won’t support it at release, and I’m not sure it ever will (which pains me to say as I have a router in the same situation in the same target) for the following reasons:
1. It’s only able to be flashed via TFTP, and soft bricks under any other method.
2. It’s a new target
3. The 5GHz driver is now included, but still very new/untested.

You can definitely custom build for it no worries, and I will look at it eventually because I have a WR902AC v3 on my desk, but not for release.

I initially bought the C20 but swapped it for C7 instead as C20 had much worse Wi-Fi range. RC5 works fine so far.

I've had a request from pbix to include another change before going live. Improvements to QOS (i'll allow him to provide the details when it is ready).

Did anything important change regarding Wi-Fi in RC5? When I frequently reconnect devices through Wi-Fi, they will not always connect anymore (Windows is either unable to connect or it shows as connected without IP address as an orange warning sign). I've not had this in RC4.
