I was using Gargoyle 1.5.10 on my D-Link DIR-615 v.E4 without any problem. Wifi was pretty good and flawless too. Then I decided to try 1.5.11 update. Installation was successful without preserve settings. I configured and enabled wireless in router, that was fine too. But when I rebooted the router, all configuration was lost and router reverted back to its' original gargoyle settings. Then I configured the router again, but no luck. It runs fine as long as I don't reboot the router. The router resets its' configuration while it reboots.


I can confirm that my DIR-601 A1 also will not retain configuration using 1.5.11. As above it seems to work fine for my use. I do not use WiFi so that was not tested. A power down will loose configurations and revert back to original.

Due to a senior moment problem, I had to do a D-Link restore (Reset button down while powering up with amber power light) to install 1.5.10 but it seems to work OK and does retain settings after a power down.


Confirmed!

The image for the D-Link DIR-601 (and probably DIR-600 as well)
is too large by about 100K

I used to compile a bunch of OpenWRT releases for it and found out
by trial and error that the firmware image cannot be larger than
3,500,000 bytes for the sysupgrade version

I think what happens is that it is too large and doesn't allow ram space
to store the variables, so when it reboots, it loses the config.

Might have to retire this device soon! I only use it for testing anyway!

2.4GHz works better than 5GHz for me :o . Is this expected?

You know that 5 GHz has a higher bandwidth but lower range. The communications rule is the higher the frequency the higher the throughput but the lower the range. If we could transmit on the AM band (550 KHz) I could probably receive my WiFi at work, 25 kms away, but the speed would be terrible.

So I can receive 2.4GHz at the other end of my house about 20m away through walls but the 5GHz only makes it about 10m through the walls. I can't even see the signal in some parts of the house.

How do I disable Atheros Adaptive Noise Immunity (ANI) in 1.5.11?

In 1.5.10 I used this suggestion from another thread:

Code: Select all

echo 1 >/sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath9k/disable_ani


This is not available in 1.5.11.

I just compiled from the lastest Trunk last night - build 38636

Base OpenWRT with LuCI interface + DDNS / QoS / UPNP modules

Just that compile with minimal extra features was 3,407,876 bytes

I know Gargoyle adds at least a couple hundred Kbytes to that

4MB Flash devices are just too small now - need minimum 8MB Flash

Hey, yea ANI still breaks my WIFI too w/ the 1043ND v.1, here's the new command:

Code: Select all

echo 0 >/sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy0/ath9k/ani

Thanks for the explanation.

hello everyone. after upgrading my wndr3800 to the latest .11 build i am experiencing an issue with wifi schedule. i have my wndr3800 to turn off wifi at 1:00 am and turning back on at 7:00 am. today i got up around 3 am to empty my bladder and noticed the wifi was on which usually is off.
i want to find out why it isn't working i have system logs turned on but doesn't show anything recent like 24 hours ago. is there another log i can access or turn on via ssh and if so where would it be? thanks in advance. gargoyle is the best.
