Enable TLS on the server:

Copy paste the ta.key contents into the TLS Auth Key box of the DD-WRT router.  Ensure your .ovpn config file also contains this:

# If a tls-auth key is used on the server
# then every client must also have the key.
tls-auth ta.key 1

Ensure the ovpn.conf file on the DD-WRT router has the following config:

root@DD-WRT-INTERNET-ASUS:/tmp/openvpn# cat openvpn.conf
dh /tmp/openvpn/dh.pem
ca /tmp/openvpn/ca.crt
cert /tmp/openvpn/cert.pem
key /tmp/openvpn/key.pem
