Well I have to play around a bit more with the dd-wrt firmware, but have in any case
got Hydra working consistently with my other linksys router using the same command;
The above on my main router with internet access etc. so I think I must have been doing something wrong before..hydra 192.168.1.1 -L /mnt/sdb1/login.txt -P /mnt/sdb1/password.txt -V -e ns -f http-get /
I decided to flash the other router back to stock linksys firmware and will dig in to dd-wrt
when feeling optimistic again
Any pointers on using hydra with different firmware as dd-wrt ?
