DD-WRT is a Linux based alternative OpenSource firmware suitable for a great variety of wireless (WLAN) routers and embedded systems.
Had you ever tried to use the DD-WRT web interface on an Android device, you should have noticed how impractical it is to navigate with.
This app lets you monitor and manage your DD-WRT routers on the go. Anytime. Anywhere.
Management features are being added progressively.
This app requires Secure SHell (SSH) to be enabled (and working!) on the router (and maybe external access if your router is behind a NAT network).
See the support website for instructions on how to setup your router(s): http://help.ddwrt-companion.rm3l.org

Please note that this app is not affiliated to the official DD-WRT project.
For details on which permissions we request and why, please see: https://help.ddwrt-companion.app/android/permissions.html
Some DD-WRT builds (such as r21061) reportedly have SSH connection issues. The issue is with the SSH server itself, not with this app.
If the app cannot connect to your Router, first ensure you can SSH into your Router from a computer, using the same credentials you provided to the app.
