Some devices allow a RAM image (initramfs). I’m not sure about network boot. I think the WRT3200ACM supports it in uboot but I don’t know if you can use Openwrt with it.

Either way, both of these aren’t really options we can look at with Gargoyle to keep it user friendly and simple. We only produce initramfs if it is needed as the first step in flashing a full image.

I'm testing this release with an Archer C7 v5 in Client + AP mode. I'm connected to the other router through the 5 GHz band.

The problem I have is that it's not broadcasting the local 5 GHz SSID. The 2.4 GHz local SSID is working perfectly.

Any ideas as to how can I troubleshoot it?

Thanks.

What channel is the upstream and local APS on?

First I tried with channel 52. Currently on channel 116.

Those are both DFS channels, and that is most likely the issue.
Go less than 52 or more than 144.

So only the first and last channels are recommended to use.

I'm going to try it on saturday and post back the results.

Thanks, Lantis.

At 80MHz bandwidth, yes. With lower bandwidths the number of available channels increases obviously.

In some countries (and if the router supports it), DFS can be used just fine, with the caveat that it will constantly scan for radar interference and then vacate the channel if it finds any.
For most users, unless they are in the middle of nowhere, this usually means they are basically unusable.

It’s a big subject if you’re interested in reading more about DFS.

This is the other router:

Now that I see, it's not even on the same channel as my C7 with Gargoyle. I don't know how's that possible.

I'm going to read more about DFS.

Dear ispyisail or Lantis,

any chance to get a build for this model:
openwrt <dot> org/toh/hwdata/tp-link/tp-link_archer_c6_v2_eu

It's a very affordable gigabit router with 128mb RAM, already supported by openWRT, and I happened to get one. Would be glad to test it out.

I'm just not sure about the size of the firmware flash memory. Openwrt lists it as 8MB, but another website says 64MB.

Thanks
