Hi Lantis

My router should arrive tomorrow or today and I have been doing some prep reading. I can't seem to find an image for the WRT1900AC.

Thought it best to ask the question rather than install an incorrect image.

You'll need to read the box to see if they sent you a v1 or v2.
They have "code names" which is how the firmware is identified.

On the downloads page it is under "mvebu".

Mamba is v1
Cobra is v2

Lantis

Just a quick message to say thank you for the help

I installed my router this morning and went through and create static ips for the bulk of devices in my house (quite a lot with 5 kids).
Got my existing fritzbox set up to act a a simple VOIP ethernet device with everything else on the fritz disabled (new ip phone is on the way so will replace fritz when it arrives).
Went through and set up restrictions, quotas and QOS and all seems to be working perfectly.

The only slight disappointment is not being able to set multiple quota controls for a group of ip address.

I would have liked to be able to do the following per child ip range:
- If 20gb total data used in a week - shape
- If 100gb total data used in a month - cut off

At the moment I have only been able to set the first rule but I am sure that this will be sufficient anyways. I can manually cut them off :lol:

Thanks again for the help.
Gargoyle is awesome so far :)

No worries, i hope that it serves you well :)

Yep i see what you mean by the double quota thing. I'm not big on the quota system so i don't know if this would even be possible to implement or not. i'm sure there is a reason that it is this way :).

By the way did you end up with a V1 or V2? If you have a V1 and you find the Fan inside to be a bit loud let me know and i'll guide you through fixing that.

Yes - I have been doing a little work on this problem recently. I will post in the development thread when I have a viable scenario.
Can you help someone else get Gargoyle up and running?

Hi Lantis,

Hoping you can help based on above I have a V1, just flashed latest build from factory and fan will not turn off (noisy) wondering if you could please provide instructions to fix- viewtopic.php?f=14&t=7644 however not sure how to install.

Appreciate any assistance, thanks in advance.

No worries Peter.

You'll need command line access to the router so that you can initiate the download and install onto the router.

I recommend using PuTTY.exe for Windows or Terminal.app for Mac/Linux
Login as root using your password.

Code: Select all

wget -O /tmp/install.sh http://lantisproject.com/gargoyle_mvebu/fan_daemon/install_fan_daemon.sh
This downloads the install script and calls it "install.sh" in the /tmp folder.
Then

Code: Select all

sh /tmp/install.sh -install
Executes the script to install the fan daemon. You can check it is working by typing
logread
And looking for an entry that says "FAN_MONITOR setting fan to 50%" or similar.

For reference, here is the temperature table in use. Figures are in degrees Celcius x1000
The fan will turn on if any of these temperatures is exceeded
CPU_ON=65000 # Belkin default is 85
DDR_ON=65000 # Belkin default is 65
WIFI_ON=70000 # Belkin default is 105

# The fan will run at reduced speed if any of these temperatures are below these values
CPU_MID=60000 # Belkin sets no default
DDR_MID=60000 # Belkin sets no default
WIFI_MID=65000 # Belkin sets no default

# The fan will turn off if all of the temperatures are below these values
CPU_OFF=55000 # Belkin default is 80
DDR_OFF=55000 # Belkin default is 60
WIFI_OFF=60000 # Belkin default is 100

I wrapped the commands in code blocks because it was cutting off the full URLs.
