Just put through an order on one of these, sounds like OpenWRT works well.

Need a new router ASAP though so hoping a deal for a ddWRT or OpenWRT router comes up before this ships.

Oh boy.. My current apple airport extreme is on its deathbed, at times only transmitting my 18Mb/sec internet down to 1-2Mb/sec. It is agonizingly slow. Is there anything I can do to hold me over until this one arrives?

If anyone is having issues flashing gargoyle onto this router using (gargoyle_1.5.9-ar71xx-generic-tl-wdr4300-v1-squashfs-factory.bin), follow the instructions below.

"There is easy version of OpenWrt I recommend it for you :-
Visit this site :- http://www.gargoyle-router.com/download.php
Look for ((gargoyle_1.5.8-ar71xx-generic-tl-wdr4300-v1-squashfs-factory.bin))
Rename it to gargoyle.bin
Open the original TP-Link configuration.
Select “System Tools” » “Firmware Upgrade”
Select
"gargoyle.bin"
file then click “upgrade”
Wait about 5 minutes then you should be able to connect to 192.168.1.1
Do not unplug the power supply during upgrade.
If after 5 minutes 192.168.1.1 is unresponsive first reboot your PC and try again. If after 20 minutes 192.168.1.1 is unresponsive you may reboot both PC and router.

That should do the job and easy to configure."

Shipped yesterday from Amazon and I got it today! Setting up OpenWRT now!

Although much uglier than DD-WRT, it seems to be working great so far. A much needed upgrade after the hell my network has been for the last week or so.

I'm having issues after flashing Gargoyle... I can't get internet access. With stock firmware, if I copied the mac address and changed the ip login to 192.168.1.1, I can connect to the internet fine. After flashing with Gargoyle and fiddling with the mac address, I just am not able to get internet access.... Can anyone help with suggestions? (I'm using Verizon Fios)

Luci isn't that bad, Gargoyle is just horribly ugly. Also I know Luci has themes you can install.

Why do you guys use different firmware? I do not have any advanced router needs. I was reading up briefly, but I couldnt find the advantages of going open firmware over stock firmware.

With me, I have a lot of connections (torrents and such) and I've found the 3rd party firmware can handle the traffic better than the stock firmware. Not so sure if this is valid with the current N routers since I've been using the Buffalo HP G router all this time until I finally grabbed this tp-link router...

Customization, flexibility, features, etc. Also the latest openwrt has codel, works wonders for skype. Basically reduces network latency when people are downloading so that voip and video calls continue to work.
