Help with install on D-Link DIR-615 rev C1

Postby elgros » Tue Apr 02, 2013 3:23 pm

Hi all

I need clarification on how to install Gargoyle on my D-Link DIR-615 rev C1 router. I have searched the forum and found several thread regarding a successful installation but never how they did it.

Should I Reset the router to factory defaults including FW version.
Then login to the web gui and update the FW with: gargoyle_1.5.9-ar71xx-generic-dir-615-c1-squashfs-factory.bin
Then login to the Gargoyle gui and start configuring it :D


or

Do I have to install DD-WRT before installing Gargoyle :?:

Any comments or help is appreciated.

Thanks

Denis :)

This sounds correct...

Thank you ericwong for you reply. I'm new to Gargoyle and I need its quota management feature (kidz chewin up my quota :x ). Great job and keep it up guys :D

Is it safe to say that if you can find the gargoyle_1.5.9-ar71xx-generic-(your model)-squashfs-factory.bin firmware in the Download section that you can flash your factory default firmware router using the update feature :?: First you must confirm that your hardware version if any is compatible.

Or is it safer to say that you need to flash your router with OpenWRT or DDWRT then update it with Gargoyle?

Thanks
Denis :D

Yes.. keep an eye on the model number in the file name itself. Don't flash the wrong one..

Ok so I installed Gargoyle 1.5.9 on my Dlink and I've been running it for close to 2 weeks now and its working great.

Thanks for your help. :D

What sort of speed do you get on the 615 with Gargoyle? Am thinking about getting a few to distribute wireless around the house.

There is no noticeable speed gain. I was in it for the quota management.

Was just wondering what speed you get, not any relative gain over the default firmware.
