Hi all,

I know this question has been posted a lot of times, but the answers are quite technical for me. Basically my landlord is looking for someone to help with installing a free software like Gargoyle (or anything that you know)  that would be able to equally distribute bandwidth cap for each tenant. I'm one of the tenants that suffers due to one or 2 stubbord people that watches movies all the time thus exceeding the day's limit and making the landlord pull the plug on the router (NetGear).


He asked me to look for someone who could help and charges a modest fee that my landlord can afford, with warranty.

If you think you could, can you let me know please, so I can relay to the landlord, and the cost of the assistance.


Area is in Avondale.


Cheers

Gargoyle runs on specific router types. For example my WRT54GL - it installs like the factory linksys firmware - no hacking, no ssh nothing hard about it. But i've heard some other types you have install openwrt then gargoyle on top. It all depends on the router type.

I'm using TP-link TL-WR941ND with Gargoyle to share the Internet connection in my flat. It's working very well!
Sorry I'm in Wellington so can't help you!

What is the current modem at the place? Ideally you want a modem that can do half bridge or pppoa to pppoe relay/bridging so that you can forward the connection to a 2nd router running something like Gargoyle Router.

TP Link TL-WR1043ND + flash Gargoyle Router is a good option for the router.

It's very easy to install the firmware on the router.

Sorry to hijack a little, but I just dug up a Linksys WAG325N V2 router from my parents place, but I can't seem to find if this is compatable with any firmware with user monitoring capabilities. I would love something like gargoyle but is this router capable of running anything similar?

I think that's a modem and router right? I don't know of any combinations of those that are supported. Just plain routers.

If you're really keen on it, you probably need to get a supported router (off the gargoyle site) and run the WAG in half bridge if it can.

Essentially using it as a modem only, not a router.
