|I made the WireGuard tunnel, it works, "traceroute -i oet1" responds, a traceroute is successfully completed via the WireGuard server. So I know for a fact that it is indeed connected to the WG host. However, I've spent the past 2 days looking at tutorials online as to how I can set up my firewall, startup scripts, etc... to allow my ethernet ports and wireless devices to use the WireGuard tunnel's IP. Everything has failed so far. Usually when I enter a firewall command or a startup script and restart the device, it gives me no connection, not even my WAN, everything dies. To fix it, I have to clear the NVRAM of the scripts, restart again, then I'll receive my usual WAN IP. Is there any way to get this to work?

Welcome to the forum
Are you setting up to a commercial provider or to your own WG server?
You can find the Wireguard setup guide here: https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1183135
The problem at this moment is that there is no NAT and no default routing over the tunnel.
You need a script for that which is also available in the WireGuard Setup thread (second post)
I am currently testing an upcoming build which will not need a script any more so that should take your troubles away (I hope).
Unless I find any show stoppers I hope the build, with this incorporated, will come out the next week
