In this example the device we want to monitor has an IP address of 192.168.1.77 and the listening/monitoring device has an IP address of 192.168.1.97. Also the firewall, in this case DD-WRT, is running on 192.168.1.1. Now SSH to the router running DD-WRT firmware as root so you can enter the below commands from the CLI.

I'm still getting used to using DD-WRT on a daily basis and loving it. One great feature, especially for us Comcast customers ( who are now victim to a new bandwidth throttling scheme ) is the built-in bandwidth monitor.

2015-1-23 · DD-WRT is a third party developed firmware released under the terms of the GPL for many ieee802.11a/b/g/h/n wireless routers based on a Broadcom or Atheros chip reference design.. The firmware is maintained by BrainSlayer and is hosted at dd-wrt.com.The first versions of DD-WRT were based on the Alchemy Firmware from Sveasoft Inc, which is in turn based on the original GPL'd …
Assuming you want a bit of long term visibility to diagnose who is using a lot of bandwidth over time, DD-WRT has this cool feature called rFlow which can send data to a remote server that collects it. The server choice is up to you, but I'm personnally a big fan of nTop. This blog post raves about the amount of visibility this can give you

Introduction. This was tested with Broadcom (Linksys WRT54GLv1.1 & Buffalo WHR-HP-G54). If you have a large network, for which DD-WRT is not a suitable core router, you will probably want to have wireless clients be a part of the larger network. In this case, clients would get DHCP configuration from Often used to give a performance boost to older routers, in addition to normal router configuration, DD-WRT serves as a network monitoring tool and a scheduler (see cron). It can also reboot the router if access to the Internet slows and even overclock the router for gamers. DD-WRT include the capability of running rflow, a Cisco Netflow data exporter implementation. The netflow data is sent to a port of a computer (management server) on your LAN running a Netflow collector, in this case this is ntop. Ntop is an open source network traffic monitoring tool that shows the network usage via a web browser. The web NetFlow monitoring software is not only about monitoring the network traffic but also a tool to help network administrators to troubleshoot faster. The ability to drill down the interfaces and the seeing the traffic, application, source, destination, conversation etc, helps a network administrator to gain an indepth visibility into the network Posted: Tue Sep 01, 2009 14:11 Post subject: Useful FREE tools for monitoring DD-WRT and your network: Cacti Cacti is a complete network graphing solution designed to harness the power of RRDTool's data storage and graphing functionality.
