Root space in TL-WDR4300 x TL-WR1043ND?

Post by ofbizbrazil »

Hi all,

At the moment I have a TL-WR1043ND router using Gargoyle/OpenWRT but I am missing space at root (no space to install programs), I know I can use a external usb drive to increase this size. ;)

My question is if I buy TL-WDR4300 would I have more space in disk?

I saw that
TL-WDR4300 is 128Mb RAM and 8Mb Flash.
TL-WR1043ND is 32RAM and 8Mb Flash.

So, when install Gargoyle does it go to RAM or Flash?

Is there any advantage buying this one?

Let me know!

Regards :cry:

Both routers have 8Mb flash.So it doesn't matter on disk space between them but RAM, sure it does ;)

You can use extroot for extra space with usb stick or hdd.

for details extroot : http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/extroot

Like the OS on your computer Gargoyle loads from flash into RAM where it executes.

So you need both and the more the merrier.
