And this is related to DD-WRT, how? I don't think the tethering code has changed (that much) since the "old" code. Kernel updates, driver updates, etc. are not necessarily the work of DD-WRT developer(s). I had to back-track so that my magic crystal ball could tell me you are using an ASRock G10. You should consider being more complete in your posts, since you have one unanswered about speeding up your connectivity. Perhaps this is a caveat of the devices now being on the 4.9 kernel and updates to said kernel's networking stack and drivers over the past couple of years or so, but it's not something that was likely willfully done on DD-WRT's end. Linux folks have no bearing on Apple's OSes or their code and driver updates. Does this problem exist on iOS 12.x.x or older?
I have difficulty believing this unless it is failing USB hardware (e.g. ports or cable).
A phone's battery will get very hot if supplied power is failing as it cannot keep up with demand.
I can see some defensive responses here, but the heat issue seems to be a real issue with recent builds of DD-WRT. I have two iPhones and several good quality cables to test with.
My older iPhone runs iOS 13, while the new one runs iOS 14. Either phone can be connected to a Mac or a Windows 10 computer and it will run cold, even with very heavy network activity - that's always been an advantage of the USB hotspot over the Wi-Fi hotspot.
Connect any of these phones to a recent build of DD-WRT, however, and the phone will get very hot very quickly, even with no significant network activity.
Anyone with the necessary devices and DD-WRT can test this for themselves.

a silly question, while USB tethering does your router provide the necessary current Amps and voltage to your iPhone? If not there you go...getting hot...
I don't think its a good idea to charge phones in router usb ports, but as tethering needs to be connected to USB and you have only one, its a silly but....true _________________ Atheros
