I used version 1.9.2 archer c7 v2 to install.

It was a seamless installation other than below..

One word of advice is that you will need to disable any pop up blockers or other extensions on your browser to upload the firmware effectively.

So far no hitches. I'll report if there are any.

I have a C7 V2 as well. Current stock firmware version 3.13.34 Build 131217 Rel. 60903n.

I was planning on flashing 1.9.2 as well but wanted to check with you to make sure all is still well before doing so? Any problems or things to be aware of?

I have been running 1.9.2 on my v2 without any issue, it's been up for 24 days now.

Upgraded to 1.11.0 today. As advised did not keep preferences. It took about a couple hours to get everything set properly but seems to be working fine now.

There was a bit in the middle where DNS lookups from clients were failing. `nslookup` from Windows failed with "connection refused". I couldn't find any setting within Gargoyle GUI that might have caused that. Changing DNS servers under "Connection >> DHCP" had no effect. After a couple of reboots the problem went away.
