Dd wrt time server
Dd wrt router configuration part 1
The NTP Client (Network Time Protocol) is a piece of software that allows your router to synchronize with a time server. When you log in to your router, the current time is shown in the upper right hand corner of the Web Interface. If the router hasn’t synchronized with a time server, some features, such as “Access Restrictions” and the “Traffic by Month” graph, won’t work. You may see unexpected activity if it has coordinated but the time has not been changed for your time zone. You can’t adjust your clock manually; instead, you must use NTP. Don’t let the time zone setting in “Setup” > “Basic Setup” > “Time Settings” trick you. This setting is only used to change the server’s synchronized time to fit your local time.
As previously mentioned, you cannot simply set the time on your router manually and then forget about it. You can, however, use the NTP client to synchronize it with a public time server and then forget about it. Login into the router and go to “Setup” > “Basic Setup” > “Time Settings” to configure the NTP client. Now it’s your turn:
Dd-wrt: static leases. (static ip router side)
NTP Client (Network Time Protocol) is a software client that synchronizes the time on your router with a time server. If you haven’t already done so for your router, you should consider doing so, particularly if “Access Restrictions” and “Traffic by Month” are both allowed. If your router isn’t in sync with the correct time, you might have major issues with some of the router’s services that depend on dates and time to decide their performance.
If you know your time servers, setting up the NTP client is easy. Navigate to your web GUI (http://192.168.1.1) > Setup > Basic Settings and scroll down to the NTP Time Section to configure the NTP client.
How to setup a vpn server on your home router using dd-wrt
At home, I have three Broadcom-based dd-wrt routers. On the main one, I’ve allowed the NTP client, the timezone, and the NTP server as “ntp.ubc.ca” on the setup tab. It performs admirably. A second router is configured as a wireless access point (WAP) (wireless access point). If you do this, you can configure the NTP server to be the mailrouter, which in my case is 192.168.0.1, according to the dd-wrt wiki. The third router is a repeater-bridge, and it receives the incorrect time from 192.168.0.1 as well. I’ve tried using the UBC NTP server’s IP address in both routers, but that doesn’t work either, even after a reboot. If you have any suggestions? Larry is a man with many talents.
Dd-wrt – basic configuration
Since DD-WRT has so many choices, this never appears to be an issue. Unfortunately, unlike Tomato and OpenWrt, which are both fantastic, DD-method WRT’s is absolutely incorrect. A Linux box can keep its time in either local time or UTC, as long as the necessary time zone information is given. However, the time zone information is totally absent in DD-WRT, and instead of using the standard implementation used in almost all Linux distributions, DD-WRT devises an odd scheme to set (and keep) the time. For eg, 8 a.m. PST (GMT-8) could be 4 p.m. GMT, but a DD-WRT router would “say” it’s 8 a.m. GMT. What would the router think if you change the time zone to EST(GMT-5)? 11:00 a.m. GMT!! Yes, after you’ve installed all of the “time zone” settings in the DD-WRT site management tab. This isn’t normally a concern if you’re only using it as a router, but if you’re running a Linux server, you don’t want to deal with any files that are created in the future. Here’s how to resolve it: It’s over. Reboot the router and use PuTTY to verify the performance by typing date. Now is the time for DD-WRT to start using local time.
