Experimental Gargoyle 1.15.x (released as 1.14) beta 20230124

Post by Lantis »

Gargoyle 1.15.x (eventually released a 1.14) is based on OpenWrt 22.03, which is a significant leap forward from 19.07 for 1.13.x.
This is the first "stable beta" (if there is such a thing) which includes all images generated, and a few new targets/profiles.

Changes since "first beta":
- Updated to OpenWrt 22.03.3
- Added ipq40xx and ramips.mt76x8 profiles (thanks to @aimacintyre)
- Fixed a DNS GUI issue (found by our Polish colleagues)
- Fixed a Tx power detection issue for 5GHz wifi (GUI bug only)
- Under ramips, made mt7620 "default" and split rt305x into its own profile

"First beta" Notable changes:
- Update from OpenWrt 19.07 -> 22.03
- Latest security updates
- Added the Mediatek target for popular devices like the Linksys e8450/Belkin RT3200 (please follow the installation guide in the wiki VERY carefully, and recommend installing OpenWrt first then upgrading to Gargoyle once successful)
- First support for Wifi 6 (802.11ax) on 5GHz only
- Quotas can be set and reset arbitrarily from the quota usage screen
- Small diagnostics plug-in to check connectivity
- Fixed a bandwidth bug causing some stats to remain zero
- mvebu devices are disabled for this release due to an issue upstream. They should return in subsequent releases. Nothing can be done about this sorry.

Note: OpenWrt 22.03 moved to nftables from iptables. Gargoyle still uses iptables to support the custom modules it needs, and so there is some package incompatibility with the base openwrt package repository. For normal operation this should not cause a problem. For anyone trying to install extra packages manually, your mileage may vary!

mvebu has a bug which causes all packets to be retransmitted on all ports, more like a hub rather than a switch.
Upstream OpenWrt have disabled mvebu for this release. The problem is fixed in master and therefore in 23.xx whenever they start to tag that.
Looks like mvebu will be a non-event for this release sorry :(

On archer C7, I can't enable UPnP. "You need to install an additional package to use this option".

You can install the gargoyle-plugin-upnp to enable the feature. It has been removed by default due to space constraints.
Add the following as custom plugin repositories (for your device)

Code: Select all

sucessfully installed on GL-inet mt1300. uptime of 5 hours.
1.RAM and wifi temperature does not show in status->overview
thanks for the firmware b/c the original firmware is a bit buggy
2.cannot access the SD card in gui under storage (maybe something new to think about implementing in the future)

RAM Temperature:- °C
Wifi Temperature:- °C

gl-axt1800 gl-mt3000

would it be possible to support the 2 devices above? i'd love these 2 added as supported. if you need funding message me with details

Not all devices have temperature probes on the wifi and RAM. It only shows what is available.

SD Cards should be available for use. I don't have a device that uses one so I can't debug it. User would need to do the hard work there sorry.

gl-axt1800 and gl-mt3000 no. Not supported by upstream OpenWrt. Maybe in the future if the manufacturer mainstreams the support for it.

So, installed this on a mini PC x86 and it works.

In the QOS upload page, I can add a new class but I can't add a new rule.
Also I can't set the maximum bandwidth.

Can you provide some more details about the rules you're trying to add that aren't accepted?
Have you tried flushing your browser cache?
I have no trouble with either of these operations here.
