Upgraded (did NOT keep settings, of course) from 1.5.6 to 1.10.0 on a TP-Link WDR3600. All looks fine and dandy.
Added the 3 port forwards I needed and no more.

I have 300/300 fiber Internet. My WAN/LAN throughput went from DL/UL 190/120 on v1.5.6 to 120/110 on 1.10.0 (measured with dslreports.com and speedtest.net)
I was a little surprised to see such a dip in the DL rate.

On my Archer C7 v2 I get around 560/550 with LEDE 17.01.4 (measured with iperf3) and it runs at 300/300 connected to the fiber modem.
Anyone explain the big difference between the two routers? WDR3600 is a 560MHz MIPS and Archer C7 v2 is 720MHz (only 1.3 times higher clock).
I don't believe the QoS and bwmon is causing this much routing degradation. Has the kernel networking improved that much from CC to current LEDE?

Before anyone asks: I'm not gonna try and install gargoyle on the Archer C7: the family would go bonkers ;)

I've been a happy user of gargoyle since v1.5.6 and BTW, IMHO, the Gargoyle UI is a lot easier and more intuitive than the LEDE/openwrt one. Good work!

You might find a lot of interest here about that:

CPU bottleneck.

Network stack is not better in LEDE. There is a lot more monitoring functionality in Gargoyle which ties up cpu time slowing it down.

Hi,
Is anyone's WRT1900AC still running hot at 85C after update to 1.10.0?
Compare to my WNDR3700, the 1900AC is running very hot.

Thanks. Just wondering if this is normal.

Tried to upgrade to TP-Link WR1043 V1.8:

- upgrade from 1.9.2. => bricked router
- upgrade from debriced router/official TPLINK firmware => bricked router.

- put back 1.9.2. from debricked router => all ok.

So, it's not working on my 1043 V1.

I personally wouldn't install on 4MB routers or use any backup setting derived from either a backup file or preserve settings when flashing this version of Gargoyle.

FWIW - applied 1.10.0 to an ancient TP-Link TL-WR841NDV7 (Rosewill RNX-N300RT variant) running 1.9.2 preserving all settings. Updated without a hitch; been stable for 24+ hours.

Obviously 4MB routers can be problematic, especially if extensively configured. That said, I have yet to experience an upgrade issue on these little workhorses starting with the 1.6 branch. Only cleared settings when explicitly instructed to do so. YMMV.

I upgraded my 1043ND and an 841ND to 1.10.0. They are both running just fine as wireless bridges.
