What is DD WRT?




A brief introduction to the custom firmware for routers




DD WRT is a custom firmware for routers that replaces the default firmware provided by the manufacturer. DD WRT is based on Linux and offers many advanced features and settings that are not available in the default firmware. Some of these features include:



  • Wireless bridging and repeater modes



  • VPN support



  • Firewall and QoS settings



  • Bandwidth monitoring and traffic shaping



  • DNS and DHCP servers



  • SSH and Telnet access



  • and much more...



DD WRT is compatible with many routers from different brands, such as Linksys, Netgear, D-Link, Asus, TP-Link, etc. You can check if your router is supported by DD WRT by using the Router Database on their website.


The benefits of using DD WRT over the default firmware




Using DD WRT over the default firmware has many benefits, such as:



  • Improving the performance and stability of your router



  • Increasing the security and privacy of your network



  • Expanding the functionality and customization of your router



  • Extending the lifespan and usefulness of your router



  • Saving money by not having to buy a new router



If you are interested in installing DD WRT on your router, you can follow the instructions on their website. However, be aware that installing DD WRT may void your warranty and may brick your router if done incorrectly. Therefore, proceed with caution and at your own risk.


What is SSH?




A brief introduction to the secure shell protocol for remote access




SSH stands for Secure Shell, which is a protocol that allows you to access a remote device securely over an unsecured network. SSH encrypts all the data that is exchanged between the client and the server, preventing anyone from eavesdropping or tampering with it. SSH also authenticates both the client and the server, ensuring that they are who they claim to be.


SSH can be used for various purposes, such as:



  • Executing commands on a remote device



  • Transferring files between devices



  • Tunneling other protocols through SSH



  • Creating a virtual private network (VPN)



  • and more...



To use SSH, you need an SSH client on your device and an SSH server on the remote device. There are many SSH clients available for different operating systems, such as PuTTY for Windows, OpenSSH for Linux and Mac OS X, etc. The SSH server is usually already installed on Linux devices, but may need to be enabled or configured first.


The benefits of using SSH over other methods of remote access




Using SSH over other methods of remote access has many benefits, such as:



  • Enhancing the security and privacy of your communication



  • Avoiding firewall restrictions or censorship



How to generate and use SSH keys for your router with DD WRT keygen




Step 1: Install DD WRT on your router




The first step is to install DD WRT on your router, if you haven't done so already. You can find the instructions and the compatible firmware for your router model on the DD WRT website. Make sure you follow the steps carefully and backup your settings before flashing your router. Installing DD WRT may void your warranty and may brick your router if done incorrectly.


Step 2: Enable SSH on your router




The next step is to enable SSH on your router, so that you can access it remotely using SSH. To do this, you need to log in to your router's web interface using a browser. The default IP address is usually 192.168.1.1, and the default username and password are both "admin". Once you are logged in, go to Services > Secure Shell and enable SSHd. You can also disable password login and change the port number if you want. Don't forget to save and apply the settings.


Step 3: Generate SSH keys on your router with dropbearkey




The third step is to generate SSH keys on your router using dropbearkey, which is a tool that comes with DD WRT. To do this, you need to connect to your router using SSH from another device, such as a computer or a smartphone. You can use any SSH client that you prefer, such as PuTTY for Windows, OpenSSH for Linux and Mac OS X, etc. The default IP address is usually 192.168.1.1, and the default username is "root". The password is the same as the one you set in the web interface.


Once you are connected to your router via SSH, you can use the dropbearkey command to generate SSH keys. The syntax is:


dropbearkey -t rsa -f /path/to/file


The -t option specifies the type of key, which can be either rsa or dss. The -f option specifies the file name where the key will be stored. For example, you can use:


dropbearkey -t rsa -f /tmp/root/.ssh/id_rsa


This will generate an RSA key pair and store it in /tmp/root/.ssh/id_rsa (private key) and /tmp/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub (public key). You can choose any file name and location that you want, but make sure they are writable and readable by root.


After generating the keys, you can use the cat command to display the public key:


cat /tmp/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub


You will see something like this:


ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQC6yJx6ZsXcZ9+8Ql7j0nYwqkW7y7cFy2+q5GyBvEeB+8wGZ7+PmFETjH4bFfUfXtZ5WnGz4fZ5+PmFETjH4bFfUfXtZ5WnGz4fZ5+PmFETjH4bFfUfXtZ5WnGz4fZ5+PmFETjH4bFfUfXtZ5WnGz4 root@DD-WRT


This is your public key that you need to copy and paste to the server that you want to access remotely.


Step 4: Copy the public key to the server




The fourth step is to copy the public key that you generated on your router to the server that you want to access remotely. To do this, you need to log in to the server using SSH from another device, such as a computer or a smartphone. You can use any SSH client that you prefer, such as PuTTY for Windows, OpenSSH for Linux and Mac OS X, etc. The IP address, username and password depend on the server configuration.


Once you are connected to the server via SSH, you need to append your public key to the authorized_keys file in the .ssh directory of your home folder. The syntax is:


echo "public_key" >> /.ssh/authorized_keys


where public_key is the public key that you copied from your router. For example, you can use:


echo "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQC6yJx6ZsXcZ9+8Ql7j0nYwqkW7y7cFy2+q5GyBvEeB+8wGZ7+PmFETjH4bFfUfXtZ5WnGz4fZ5+PmFETjH4bFfUfXtZ5WnGz4 root@DD-WRT" >> /.ssh/authorized_keys


This will add your public key to the authorized_keys file, which allows SSH access without password from devices that have the corresponding private key.


Step 5: Test the connection and enjoy secure remote access




The final step is to test the connection and enjoy secure remote access to your router with DD WRT keygen. To do this, you need to connect to your router using SSH from another device, such as a computer or a smartphone. You can use any SSH client that you prefer, such as PuTTY for Windows, OpenSSH for Linux and Mac OS X, etc. The IP address is usually 192.168.1.1, and the username is "root". However, this time you don't need to enter a password, because SSH will use the private key that matches the public key that you copied to the server.


If everything works fine, you will see something like this:


Welcome root@DD-WRT #


This means that you have successfully logged in to your router via SSH without password using DD WRT keygen. You can now execute commands on your router remotely and securely.
