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.
