I have a strange one with DD-WRT v3.0-r40559 std (08/06/19) running on a Netgear R7000 wireless router.

Using SSH to log in with public key authentication works perfecty from the LAN, however when I try externally I get a strange message:

Using username "admin".
DD-WRT v3.0-r40559 std (c) 2019 NewMedia-NET GmbH
Release: 08/06/19
Board: Netgear R7000
Server refused our key

PuttyNG also has a popup containing:

Disconnected: No supported authentication methods
available (server sent: publickey)

The key I am using is idential as are the settings from the client on my LAN computer. The SSH client on the router is on port 222 and this is externally accessible.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Besides that the default username for access is root, I don't see any other problems.

Nailed it, thanks! My superuser for the web frontend is admin so I put that in by mistake, on the home PC where it always worked it was root.
