Eh... maybe stupido, and I did not read the complete forum so don't blame me for my question (maybe only for not reading the complete forum)...

But... I've installed the new barrier breaker last week on my 1043 and it runs sweet (as a WDS repeater). Does this also enable the possibility to install the openwrt packages? Or should I be careful to install them?

EDIT: "Firstboot" reset fixed the problem

Don't use "preserve setting" upgrade

Gargoyle Version:1.7.X (Built 20141217-0454 git@abde007)

Is the Wireless problem only on WDR3600 or is it on all Dual Band Routers?

I wanna try it on Archer C7, ordering it next week.

Or do you have an other Router that is better then this?


Thank you!

Flashed a TP-LINK TL-WDR4300 v1.0 to Gargoyle-ispy 2014-December-17 followed by failsafe mode and using firstboot to ensure no invalid/old settings data is present and causing issues.

Like OpenWRT Barrier Breaking 14.07 wireless is sometimes unresponsive using 20MHz, WPA2 PSK and various channels. OpenWRT Barrier Breaking 14.07 with some mobiles would loose ability to connect to AP after a while claiming poor signal, have yet to have that appear with Gargoyle-ispy 2014-December-17.

The signal claims are rubbish as I have tested inSSIDer Wi‑Spy Mini and older OpenWRT/Gargoyle builds do not have this issue.

I hope OpenWRT Chaos Calmer is less issue prone release with switch issues and wireless issues largely resolved.

The TP-LINK's tend to have more issues than the compatible WNDR3700's/WNDR3800.

I would strongly advise if you do get a TL-WDR3600 or TL-WDR4300 that after flashing to Gargoyle you trigger failsafe mode and use firstboot to ensure no invalid/old settings data is present and causing issues.

I'm a bit confused

Is the current build giving you problems or not?

there's a problem with the build process from git and no one seams to care :|

Code: Select all

before you say anything I already tried single threaded build

Looks like the sluggish wireless was a one off thing, I don't have wireless on my main PC and mobiles/tablets are far from ideal clients to troubleshoot with.

Thanks for the build ispyisail I'll let you know if I run into any issues.
