Good to hear that it's working for you. It's still broken for me though!
I even tried using OpenWRT's wput binary. It successfully deposits files onto my FTP server but it doesn't detect the local file size properly. It thinks bwdata.tgz on the router is 700MB and it sees that bwdata.tgz on the FTP server is only a few KB, so it tries to resume the transfer in an infinite loop. None of its switches stop it from doing that, unfortunately.
Anybody have any suggestions?
I meant to follow up, the REAL reason mine started working was because I disabled the windows firewall..I should know better than to change more than one thing at a time when diagnosing..I thought it was the service stopping and starting that fix it because I did that AFTER disabling the firewal but before trying the FTP again..but it was actually the firewall breaking the ftpput.
It is odd that I can use FTP in DOS to manually FTP to the server but when I do it from the router with the firewall on, it wont work..I have done some reading and it has something to do with the firewall and passive FTP, but I am yet to try the fix I found.
Do you have a firewall running? Can you disable it to see if that helps you?

I followed all instructions and there is no errors or any other indications of any issues. All goes smoothly. I can connect to TCP 8000, get a redirect to /traffic.cgi but it abruptly ends connection when it's being executed. IE just shows blank page.
Now it works great, except I'm getting the BWData.tgz as a 0byte file for backups -- verified it's -0b on the router as well, not just on the FTP, so it's not the FTP's fault... Can't figure out why it's 0b - it's logging BW usage data, so it seems that /something/ should be in there.
Can anyone verify maybe that WRTbwlog and the backup feature works at all in dd-wrt v24? If so, what is your startup script and files are you using?
Everything works perfectly for me, except every time it back up, it spits out a 0b file. It does this to flash and to FTP - so it appears that it's just not getting any data to put into it? Also, doing an 'ls -s' on the /data directory shows that all the files are 0 for content, which I might be inclined to think has something to do with it, except for the fact that it appears to keep reasonably accurate data on the traffic.cgi page.
I've been trying all sorts of different versions of this that I've found on the web, but only the one I mentioned in my last post seems to function at all.
