Tailscale on Router (DD-WRT)

Has anyone put Tailscale on a DD-WRT router? I want to route between the LAN and the Tailscale addresses, I’m using a Linux VM now to do that but it seems overkill. Low latency is very important for this application.
This Netgear Nighthawk seems to run DD-WRT under Linux. I’ve not tried hacking around in the router, and this seems an intimidating application to try this out on, so experience of others would be most helpful. Or maybe it’s impractical.

I’m not sure about dd-wrt, but I’ve heard of some people doing it on openwrt. If your router has enough RAM and can load packages, it should be theoretically possible at least.

I’d like to know what’s the recommended ram for tailscale to run.

I’m afraid that’s a question for Tailscale. I’m sure it varies by use case.

I have it running nicely on my router using Entware. Note that I’m not using ddwrt, but rather FreshTomato. Machine is a Netgear R6250 with 250MB RAM.

It is set up as a subnet router, so that I can access all of my devices on my home network while on the road.

I’m pretty sure that Entware can also be installed alongside DDWRT, since the DDWRT wiki has a page devoted to Entware.

Not sure about more embedded systems like DD-WRT or OpenWRT, but I run Tailscale flawlessly on my Ubiquiti Edgerouter X. Granted that’s debian based, however the specs haven’t been a problem
