    I guess this is probably not possible, but it can't hurt to ask.

    I have configured DDNS on my router, so i can access stuff that is hosted on my laptop. But my laptop is not always turned on, so obviously it can't always be accessed. So I'm wondering if it is possible to host a very simple html page on the router itself? Just some basic text stuff, not more than a few KB in size.

    My router is a Linksys WRT54GL, running Tomato Firmware v1.25.1720

    Thanks for any answers :)

    yes you could host a web page but you would have to probably enabled jffs, create a replacement web configuration page on the jffs partition along with the static web page contents. After the router started up you would restart the web services with the configuration from jffs.

    If you have the funds you could updated to a router that is supported by Tomato RAF, he has the NGINX web server in the firmware and you could leverage a USB drive attached as the storage that hosts the pages.
