Gargoyle for wireless routers

MONITOR BANDWIDTH usage for every computer
MONITOR BANDWIDTH usage for every computer
SET QUOTAS AND THROTTLES ensuring that network resources are allocated fairly
BLOCK FORBIDDEN WEBSITES or block everything except a white-list of allowed addresses
CONFIGURE A WIRELESS BRIDGE connecting two networks without any ugly wires
Read the installation instructions
before downloading the software

Not sure if your router is supported?
Check the list of supported routers.
In general your router must have 16MB of RAM and 4MB of FLASH minimum to run Gargoyle. In addition you will have more joy in your life if your router has at at least 32MB of RAM and 8MB of FLASH. Most consumer routers do not have these minimum requirements so chances are if you just got back from the electronics store with your brand new router you are out of luck. The better approach is to do some research beforehand and buy a router that you are pretty confident will run Gargoyle. The cost difference between the one that works and the one that doesn't is going to be about $20. Trust me when I tell you that its a good investment.
