install advice/guide wrt1900acs please

Post by adrianjt »


Non techie & only doing this (installing router firmware) annually, + not wanting to repeat recent debacle with linksys EA8500/blow $250, searched wrt1900 gargoyle install guide, couldn't find one specifically for wrt1900...

But did find this which I assume is similar...

If there is a specific gargoyle install how to for wrt1900acs please could you post the link?

Appreciate all advice, thanks Adrian

Theres no Gargoyle specific install guide.
The generic openwrt instructions apply.
The OpenWrt device page is here:

For any advice, follow Openwrt guides/instructions. Ddwrt is a completely different beast. for the latest releases
Please be respectful when posting. I do this in my free time on a volunteer basis.

1. First go back to the OEM firmware from Linksys (from DD-Wrt to OpenWrt can be problematic and sometimes brick).

2. Then follow the Linksys firmware update and use this factory.img image: ... actory.img

It will be done only once, *sysupgrade.bin image will be used for further updates.
