DD-WRT is Linux-based firmware for wireless routers and access

points. Originally designed for the Linksys WRT54G series, it now
runs on a wide variety of models. DD-WRT is one of a handful of
third-party firmware projects designed to replace manufacturer's
original firmware with custom firmware offering additional features or

Sebastian Gottschall, a.k.a. "BrainSlayer", is the founder and primary

maintainer of the DD-WRT project.[2] The letters "DD" in the project
name are the German license-plate letters for vehicles from Dresden,
where the development team lived.[3] The remainder of the name was
taken from the Linksys WRT54G model router, a home router popular
in 2002–2004. "WRT", also used by the OpenWrt router firmware
project, comes from the generic abbreviation for "Wireless RouTer",
which may have been the original Linksys meaning.

Buffalo Technology and other companies have shipped routers with

factory-installed, customized versions of DD-WRT.[4][5] In January
2016, Linksys started to offer DD-WRT firmware for their routers.[6]
