Set this up on ASUS RT-N66U and it worked perfectly first time. Now enjoying on-demand content on my satellite box. Brilliant.

DD-WRT setup on my Asus RT-AC68U started to give problems. I reinstalled to the latest version of Asus firmware, enhanced with the newest Marlin firmware and followed this tutorial. It works really great.
Notice that OpenVPN Client control has to be re-applied in case of router reboot
