Setting up cron job for DD-WRT routers
If you currently have a DD-WRT router and you have a dynamic IP address that changes frequently, you can set up your DD-WRT router to update your IP address automatically.
This cron job will update your IP automatically based on a set interval via wget. First, you would have to find your UUID address as per our link in the instructions below:
Then, in your DD-WRT router setup page, go to Administration > Management and look for Cron.
Make sure Enable is checked and key in any one of the commands below (depending on the update frequency that you prefer):
*/30 * * * * root wget -qO - [UUID Link]
* /1 * * * * root wget -qO - [UUID Link]
* /2 * * * * root wget -qO - [UUID Link]
whereby "[UUID Link]" is replaced with the full UUID link.
*/30 * * * * root wget -qO - https://www.simpletelly.com/client/updateIP.php?uuid=12341234-1234-1234-1234-123412341234
Once that's done, click on Apply Settings at the bottom of the page and that's it!
