Hi scrmtrey openwrt dus not have hardware nat so Gargoyle can not have
hardware nat.
The people over at openwrt wood have it if they could but the venders of the chips that handle hardware nat will not let us have the drivers that run it.

I found that with this release, dropbear no longer consults
for your public keys, as in previous versions.

You'll need to use the new location $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys, instead.

mkdir $HOME/.ssh
chmod 700 $HOME/.ssh
cp -p /etc/dropbear/authorized_keys ${HOME}/.ssh/
That helped me a lot. For people (like me) that have disabled the password authentication I'd advise to use plugin "Webshell for Gargoyle" to perform the commands above. In this case I had to use explicitly /root instead of $HOME.

I would kindly ask the Gargoyle developers to include /root/.ssh and the likes in the settings backup.

Looking forward to BB when it arrives in Nov!
Thought I would post a followup. 1.6.2 has been up for 8 days now, not a problem, so a good stable release at least on my router. Looking forward to BB when it arrives.

I have upgrade my two devices from "-ispy 2014-July" to the "1.6.2" and my wlan is now very slow. (wlan strength 60%-65%)

anyone with the same problems ?

(TL-WR841N v8 and WA901N/ND v2)


downgraded back to "spy 2014-July", full speed again.
wlan strength is much more better (78% - 85%)

I have a Linksys WRT400N.

At first I upgraded from 1.6.1 to 1.6.2 preserving settings, and WiFi signal/speed/quality deteriorated when far from the router, in areas previously with good WiFi. Downgraded, and upgraded without preserving settings, and it seems to have fixed that issue. 2.4GHz seems solid.

It seems I lost all 5GHz support with 1.6.2. I get the following no matter what 5GHz channel I choose.

Sep 26 13:33:15 Gargoyle daemon.warn hostapd: wlan1: IEEE 802.11 Configured channel (48) not found from the channel list of current mode (2) IEEE 802.11a
Sep 26 13:33:15 Gargoyle daemon.warn hostapd: wlan1: IEEE 802.11 Hardware does not support configured channel

With 1.6.1 I was almost always connected to 5GHz.
QoS Tip: Don't complicate your QoS settings. Gargoyle evenly splits available bandwidth between active devices as needed. Just delete all your classification rules and leave only one normal service class and you're done. No more arguing over bandwidth.

Upgraded by WNDR3700 (v1) and lost config (like a factory reset).
I had a backed up, so restored but a warning to backup your config 1st!

Thanks Erik for the critical update!

I have recently installed 1.6.2 on a new TP Link 3600.
I am having quite variable wireless performance. Establishing a connection seems difficult for both a Win 7 host and an iPad, and once established they connection performance is VERY slow. Very odd. I have not previously had problems with Gargoyle wifi.
