My TL-WR702N died, and need new gargoyle router :(

Post by danielbackward »

Hi all, I am new member and I have some problems
Yesterday my TL-WR702N gargoyle router went titsup. com, would maintain connection for about 5 minutes then drop. This happened on both wired and wireless. Many reboots of all my equipment (Optus cable, net gear switch, plink router) later and still not working. I hadn't made any changes to the router either in firmware version or configuration in the days or weeks preceding this event.

In the end I dug out my old netgear WNDR3800 and setup it up and it's worked perfectly for the last day.

I want to get a new router that supports latest gargoyle firmware (I love the guest network ability), which local purchasable routers currently support gargoyle?
I would appreciate your comments :(

wdr2100ac Is a good router and the wrt1900ac. there mite be a way to get your router back up and running if you can get your router in to Failsafe you can do a firstboot.

Are there any new routers on the market today that can be flashed to Gargoyle? It seems like they are all locked down by the manufacturer.

I use the ARcher C7v2 as a "newer" router. A few steps before flashing Gargoyle but not too bad.
