Thank you.
I live in a private house, there are no other people's networks. The router is in the attic and does not reach the arbor. I read that there is a limit on the signal power in the region. Put OAE, added power, but nothing has changed = (

it’s good that there are no neighbor networks. For more than 20-21 you will not get power, try to lower it from the attic to the room or connect a second router in client-bridge mode to it, you will get one network, the second router will amplify the signal from the first.

The story turned into a joke of the 90s ...

A friend bought a cordless telephone (not even dect yet) and asked a friend - how to check that the phone is good? Friend:
- Well, you call whoever you are and leave the base at 10m. If the sound is normal, then the phone is normal. Then you go back to 20m. If you hear, then the phone is not bad. We leave for 30m. If you hear, then the phone is good. Depart to 40m, if you can still hear, the phone is excellent. Depart to 50m. if it works, then you have a nice apartment ...

Why is this? ... You have a good site!

I have Khrushchev, 5th floor, an apartment behind the wall from the entrance (the windows are not in the courtyard), a router under the ceiling. Sitting in a car in my pocket in front of the entrance I catch a signal, I can read the mail while I wait for my wife (the signal is barely visible, but visible!)

Gargoyle firmware (well, this is the same openwrt. Settings 2.4 (5 naturally does not catch behind an apartment): channel width - 20, power - maximum.

Good day to all. Yesterday decided to put the firmware of the cap DD-WRT for the hardware version Ver.1, through an interface restart and stop defining normal laptop via Ethernet, just as unknown utroystvo, via Wi-Fi in general is not defined. The interface does not go not in one of the proposed cap. Trying to connect, and then takes himself restarts, and cyclically. Manipulation of the restoration through a program like did not help. I do not know what to do, ask your assistance, only one router.

The people, and in v.4 is it possible to limit the guest network in speed?
I want to leave it open, let the guests use it, it’s enough for 500 Mbps for the eyes, but there are arrogant neighbors who can download something completely, so I would like to limit the speed, but I didn’t see anything like that in the settings.

As I understand it, it will be necessary to enter all the addresses, and the goal is just the same so that guests do not enter passwords, there were no problems.

For some reason I thought that, whatever one may say, there is in the router,) I am surprised that it is impossible. People come in, including at work, and there are cases of using wifi for purposes that do not meet the requirements of the law, then explain where the person you saw once in your life has a password from the home network. It’s easier here, who needs it, uses it, without unnecessary information.

* boty2007,
Bring the neighbors and block them. In general, just enter the password once for your guests and that’s all. Or do you have a passage yard? :)

Stitched, as indicated in the instructions.

factory-to-ddwrt.bin - file for installing DD-WRT from under the router’s native firmware.

webflash.bin - file for updating from the already installed DD-WRT.

For some models, only one file is available for all operations.

For initial installation of DD-WRT:

In the address bar of the browser we typehttp://, depends on the router, enter the authorization data and update the factory-to-ddwrt.bin file through the standard update menu in your router.
After some time, the router will reboot, after which you will see the updated interface (DD-WRT's address is by default). On the main page when you first start you need to specify the username and password for administration.
Firmware dd-wrt installed, you can proceed to configure. (It is also recommended to do a reset to the factory settings after the firmware and before the setting)

Esli you are having problems it is impossible to go to the admin panel DD-WRT firmware after, go to the network connections on your computer and make sure that the ip addresses are given correctly: ip: (last digit may vary) Mask: gateway: If the addresses are different, then the easiest option to restart the network card (.. On and off again when the network asks for dhcp addresses), if this does not work, enter manually, for example ip, mask: Gateway: 192.168. 1.1 and try again to enter the browser to the address

To update an already installed DD-WRT:

In the DD-WRT menu, select “Administration” - in the submenu, select the item “Firmware upgrade”. Click on the “select file” button and specify the webflash.bin firmware that you downloaded earlier. Click on the “Upgrade” button, the software update process will begin.

Return to stock firmware from DD-WRT for V.4:
1.Download firmware from your website TP-Link to your router or a ready-made file:Attached fileArcher C7 (RU) MB)
2.Download to your LEDE router from here:https: //downloads.lede...argets/ar71xx/generic/,(download only factors) or a ready-made file:Attached MB)
(skip point 4), extract the firmware from the archive.
3.On the PC network card, set: mask, ip
4. Renamed LEDE firmware in ArcherC7v4_tp_recovery.bin
5. Through tftp I flashed LEDE (turn off the antivirus / firewall, in the off state of the router we hold down the reset button and without releasing it turn on the router, as the indicator starts to move in the programtftpdrelease the reset button and wait for the end, the router will automatically reboot (sew only with a factor file).
6. Rename the stock firmware to ArcherC7v4_tp_recovery.bin or a ready-made file:Attached MB)

I can’t flash it.

1) connected the router by cable to the LAN 1 socket
2) Set on the network card, mask
3) renamed the firmware to ArcherC7v4_tp_recovery.bin
4) downloaded, installed, launched tftpd32 standard edition (installer) v4.52, chose a place with firmware, remained on the SERVER tab
5) turned off the router with the off button, clamped a reset clip, turned on the router
6) waited 15 or more seconds, nothing happened.
