How to set up a Cronjob on DD-WRT to Auto Update Your IP

This guide is for advanced users only. We don’t provide support for DD-WRT configuration.

By using a cronjob to visit your API url on a regular basis you can ensure that the IP in your Unlocator account is always up to date. Please see the examples of a couple of cronjob commands below.

Hourly:
0 * * * * root wget http://unlo.it/Your_API_KEY_HERE
Every 3 hours:
0 */3 * * * root wget http://unlo.it/ Your_API_KEY_HERE
Every 12 hours:
0 */12 * * * root wget http://unlo.it/Your_API_KEY_HERE
