The dlink wont work as a standalone. I figured maybe with custom firmware (such as dd-wrt, tomato, etc) you could reassign one of the LAN ports ("outputs") to work as a WAN port ("internet input") but didnt find any custom firmware for it.
Without DSL that D-link unit becomes an interesting paperweight. It may be worth something to someone on ebay however!
Exactly! I would try to sell it on eBay, but seems like not many takers, eventually I am not good in listing or selling things. May be it going to be future paperweight.
Or if for some reason I move back to Verizon then it will be of some use.
Gargoyle[gargoyle-router.com] and here[wikipedia.org].
Gargoyle is a free OpenWrt-based Linux distribution for a range of Broadcom and Atheros chipset based wireless routers, mainly the older-model Linksys WRT54G (including the WRT54GL and WRT54GS), Asus Routers and Netgear WNR3500L. Among notable features is the ability to limit and monitor bandwidth and set bandwidth caps per specific IP address
Gargoyle supports TP-Link TL-WR1043ND v1-1.8 Did anyone get theirs yet? If so, what version is it? (1.8, 1.9, 1.10 ...)
The latest Gargoyle is 1.5.9, which is built from OpenWRT Attitude Adjustment RC1. Attitude Adjustment RC1 supports this router's v1.10 hardware. Earlier OpenWRT builds do not support v1.10. Backfire 10.03.1 is known to brick this router.
I followed the instructions here: http://www.c2s.co.nz/blog/gargoyl...-wr1043nd/. Only change that I had to make was to rename the Gargoyle file to factory.bin before upgrading the router. For some reason, the upgrade didn't like the original file name (kept telling me to choose a file, when I had already chosen one).
