    1. I can’t for the life of me get your widget to work. Tried everything I can think of. Could it be that my dd-wrt router is a setup to be a repeater that deployed to extend my current WiFi network? I tried port 22 and manually entered ports. I tried turning on SSH and rebooting normally to see if the changes weren’t sticking correctly. I enabled remote SSH management even though the walkthrough doesn’t mention that. I tried root and admin with my router login password. Nothing… =(
