    June 11th, 2019

    Introduction:

    MTR, or otherwise known as My Trace Route, is a powerful network utility that combines Ping and Traceroute to give you a better idea of where there might be congestion or issues with your/other networks.

    Step 1

    SSH into router and enter the configuration mode by typing configure

    Step 2

    To update the router to look in the Debian app respositories, enter these commands line by line:

    set system package repository wheezy components 'main contrib non-free'

    set system package repository wheezy distribution wheezy 

    set system package repository wheezy url http://http.us.debian.org/debian

    commit

    save

    exit

    Step 3

    After that, you can then update the repositories by running the command sudo apt-get update

    Step 4

    Once the repositories are updated, you can install MTR by running the command sudo apt-get install mtr* alternatively, you can get the tiny-version by using mtr-tinyinstead of mtr

    Step 5

    You can then try it out by typing mtr and then any ip address that you want (Ex. mtr 8.8.8.8)
