What is Gargoyle?


If you want to build your own router(s) you would use Gargoyle. Gargoyle is a polished, intuitive interface for small, widely available routers like Linksys, Asus, Netgear, etc. It provides functionality and customizability - far above and beyond - what the default software provides including sophisticated quality of service, and bandwidth monitoring tools.

Starting with Gargoyle version 1.9.2 you can enable Kibosh Cloud filtering by simply entering your Kibosh ID. What this means is that if you have a router that supports Gargoyle you can build your own powerful Parental Control solution.

See if your router is supported by Gargoyle.

  • Find the model of your router and search for it in the Gargoyle download section.
  • Example: you have a TP-Link WDR 3600 router. Search for 'wdr3600'.

Kibosh protects every device in your home, instantly — laptops, smartphones, tablets, DVRs, game consoles, TVs, literally anything that connects to the internet.
