The DD-WRT is custom, Linux-based firmware available for many mainstream routers. You can hotflash DD-WRT to your router to open up additional capabilities of the router that you did not have access to before. You can set the DD-WRT firmware to schedule a reboot at regular intervals. Regularly rebooting your router is useful because, like with the memory on a computer, certain data will stay lodged in the router's memory until a reset and can slow the unit down.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log in to the DD-WRT router. Open a browser and enter your router's IP address, by default this is "" unless you have changed this. Enter the username and password you have set to log in.

  2. 2

    Click "Administration."

  3. 3

    Click "Keep Alive." Click "Enable" next to "Schedule Reboot."

  4. 4

    Choose either the "Interval" or the "Set time" you want to reboot.

  5. 5

    Click "Save" and then "Apply Changes."
