I may at some later point (busy week). If you have any hint where to look at, let me know. I do know that the early enabling I did last spring for 2023.0x was fine in this regard.

Start by examining the output of /usr/lib/gargoyle/cache_basic_vars.sh which builds /tmp/cached_basic_vars
Then make sure that in the browser console there are no errors shown when going to Connection->Basic.
If that all checks out fine it points more to a missing driver or similar.

Creating a valid wireless config, issuing “wifi” and then looking at the logs might be telling.

mvebu works now.
Someone at OpenWrt has "fixed" WPA3 on these devices so it now "works".
It looks like all it does is not crash, and offload the cryptographic operations to the CPU. Surprisingly this router can't seem to handle that and it runs terribly slow.
Stick with WPA2.

yes i just saw that, but it only installs the necessary files on the router, you still have to go through all those command lines in telnet to be able to bring up the connection...
I was wondering if it could be implemented in the UI graphical interface, it would be nice if in the "Connections" menu we could find this USB tethering option beside the "Gateway" & "Wireless Bridge" option, so that the router automatically reconfigures itself once you plug in your phone to the usb port and select this "USB Tethering" connection

I use Android so maybe those Iphone files from that plugin are useless for me and still have to download other android specific files, that is no problem for downloading as i did that before, but once those needed files are already in the router, what bothers me is all that hassle you have to go through to bring up that connection through telnet and do that again everytime you recycle through other type of connections (AP, bridge...)
just wanted to bring up a little update to the USB Tethering part of this firmware...i struggled a lot fixing the slow speed that i got using the phone connected to the router, it used to have 1/10 of the speed compared to the situation when the phone was connected directly to a win11 computer also via usb tethering protocol...was searching for the possible solution, i encountered a lot of posts from other forums people having the same problem until i found a reddit post where someone enumerated all the packages that must be installed to properly handle USB 2.0 speeds and it looked like the only package that i was missing was "usb-utils". after this upgrade the usb tethering via the router gave me the same 10 MB/S (not mb/s) like when the phone was directly connected to the computer.
I can watch now buttery smooth 2160p HDR videos on YT without any problem directly on my PC and TV at the same time having the phone as the only internet source!
so i thought that having this package integrated already into the newest gargoyle firmwares would save a lot of time for newbies and users who need this function to work at full potential

Are you able to link to this reddit thread please?
I can’t find any evidence of why having that package installed would help, but I would like to dig further.
Obviously it has improved your experience, and I’d like to hear more evidence from others to confirm.
At 54KB it’s not the end of the world including it, but I’d rather leave it out if the benefits are questionable.

Also please remind me what router you are using.
