DD-WRT Companion Lite for Android

By Armel Soro Free

Developer's Description

DD-WRT is a Linux based alternative OpenSource firmware suitable for a great variety of wireless (WLAN) routers and embedded systems. This app aims at making DD-WRT devices management and monitoring a breeze, right from your Android devices. It lets you connect to and monitor your DD-WRT routers on the go. Management features are being added progressively. This release contains non-intrusive Ads to help support its development. Please consider purchasing the ad-free version to unlock all the premium features: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.rm3l.ddwrt This app requires Secure SHell (SSH) to be enabled (and working) on the router. See the support website for instructions on how to setup your router(s): http://ddwrt-companion.rm3l.org DD-WRT Companion supports both private key and password-based SSH authentication methods. We do recommend you leverage strong public-private key authentication for SSH access.

Features (some of them may not be available in the Free version): It supports both private key and password-based SSH authentication methods. Of course, such sensitive info is encrypted locally and never ever leave your mobile device. Traffic monitoring (realtime and monthly traffic data) + sharing with detailed daily breakdown. List of hosts connected to the router + notifications. Wake on LAN (WOL) support. OpenVPN, PPTP VPN. WiFi QR-Codes: you now no longer need to share your WiFi password to your guests. Just share the generated QR Code and they can connect instantly (provided they use a compatible QR Code scanner app). Actions on Router: reboot, factory defaults, backup / restore. Toolbox utilities: network diagnostics tools (e.g., ping, traceroute, nslookup). Commands: issue any commands to your router, remotely, and retrieve the output. Home Screen Widgets. Please note that this app is not affiliated to the official DD-WRT project.

Notes Some DD-WRT builds (e.g., r21061) reportedly have SSH 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.
