 Don't complain on the forum that your router'​s native firmware gives you better throughput than Gargoyle firmware does.  With Gargoyle you are getting features and stability which you do not have with your native firmware. ​ If you cannot achieve the speeds you want get a faster router. Don't complain on the forum that your router'​s native firmware gives you better throughput than Gargoyle firmware does.  With Gargoyle you are getting features and stability which you do not have with your native firmware. ​ If you cannot achieve the speeds you want get a faster router.

 +----------------
 +
 +All routers have a maximum processing speed for the WAN link. If you lower your total WAN bandwidth (upload plus download) to below this maximum on the Gargoyle QoS screens then Gargoyle will throttle your throughput and all your Gargoyle functions will work properly. This may result in you not being able to utilize the full bandwidth your ISP provides you but you will have stable and predictable performance. ​
 +
 +Selecting a router that has enough horsepower to handle your full bandwidth is important if you really want to use all your available bandwidth. Stock firmware which comes with your modem will usually provide higher throughput than Gargoyle. The reason for this is simple. The stock firmware does not have the advanced features of Gargoyle. Especially QoS and Bandwidth monitoring. These are the features that require CPU horsepower. If you turn them off in Gargoyle you will also see a high throughput capability.
 +
 +Like a car top-end speed is not the only desirable feature. The many other features that you use everyday are usually what you should concentrate on and these are what Gargoyle provides.
