Namecheap DDNS Updates via DD-WRT

DD-WRT has limit support for different DDNS update mechanisms.
A simple workaround is the following script.

Login to your router and go to Administration > Commands

Add the following to the startup script, modifying it for your details

Finally, go to the Administration > Management and add a crontab to update it hourly.

Enjoy 😉


DD-WRT with CA Signed certificate, bundle and key

Surprisingly enough, finding new documentation on DD-WRT, with a custom certificate, is difficult.
Yes, there is information around, however it’s date years old which doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence.

Login to your DD-WRT front end.
Go to Management -> commands.

In the commands box, paste your keys like so.
Finally at the bottom choose ‘save startup’ and your are done.
If you are concerned about it going wrong, you can run it interactively on the console first to test 🙂

Golang DD-WRT Bandwidth Usage with Conky

I setup a golang script to fetch the DD-WRT bandwidth usage for the previous 2 months, as well as the last 30 days(rolling).
Using conky then i can display it on my desktop.
My ISP (digiweb), don’t provide any means to check your bandwidth.
Picture at end of post 🙂
