Thanks for 1.5.8. I almost never run MSIE so I'm still on the first 1.5.8 build. As reported under 1.5.7 first, I still have an issue whereby my devices start to drop out and would not reconnect anymore until I reboot the router. I never had to do that up to 1.5.6 and I've installed almost all versions for quite some time now. It seems to be more noticeable with devices that come in and out of my network, ie phones and tablets, also WD media devices that kids turn on and off a few times a day. In about 24hrs after I reboot my WNDR3700v2, our phones would no longer get an IP; so would our tablets if we took them out of the house and back a few times that day. All of those devices have static IPs assigned. I used to have "Block MAC addresses assigned a static IP that connect from a different IP" checked and it was never an issue up to and including 1.5.6. Now the error seems to happen regardless of this toggle. I've changed lease time to as low as 2hrs and up to 12 hrs - error is still persistent. As this was a clean install of 1.5.7, then upgraded to 1.5.X, then upgraded again with preserve settings to 1.5.8, I also did a clean 1.5.8 install hoping that would clear the bug. I only setup my subnet, DNS, assigned static IPs, not much more configured - error is still persists.
Any help is appreciated (yes, going to 1.5.6 will fix the errors but that's not helping the community :)

I can strongly confirm this post

I've been finding the same problem but didn't really known how to put it into words because most/many devices do work well

it would be good if we had a backfire final?

When I set up internet access via wireless DHCP, the connection is unstable, the web is unavailable at any given time. would be a bug? :cry:

Not necessarily a bug.

OpenWRT is underneath Gargoyle

OpenWRT is in constant development/patching/tweaking

At this time, your device may not perform the best with the version
of OpenWRT that Gargoyle is currently using, but could perform better
in a future version

You may have to try different firmware versions to see which works best

My WR1043ND bricked when I upgraded from 1.4.7 to 1.5.8 version.
:cry:

I uploaded the sysupdate file and I noticed that my wireless connection down. Then I thought it was reseting. But it remains stoped. I tried Failsafe mode but it doesnt answer for ping request.

Not bricked - you may have to try Linux method or a Windows XP machine

Failsafe / TFTP almost NEVER works with Windows Vista / Windows 7

Did you make sure to Un-check the box to save settings?
Flashing 1.5.7 or 1.5.8 needs to restore to defaults, you cannot upgrade
to either of those 2 versions and keep settings - the router config will
not work properly and you will have trouble accessing the router.

It didnt show the option to save setttings, but only the field to select the file to upgrade.
I tried the TFTP on Windows XP and also on Ubuntu:

Failsafe also didnt work.

Does it exists any router that has a safe recovery mode, as a recovery button or a recovery from USB method?

You need a Serial TTL cable to recover it. It's well explained in OpenWRT Wiki.

I managed to brick mine twice too using sysupgrade file, don't know exactly why but with factory files it never happened.

Do you know if this cable is compliance:

You don't need JTAG, only serial TTL(5v signal).

I have one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USB-Data-Cabl ... 335f6abaaa
