For detailed bandwidth tracking there is a great plugin ip_conntrack available on dd-wrt.com forum.
Step 1 – upload plugin to DD-WRT
The easiest way how to upload any content to DD-WRT is build-it ProFTPD server. To enable it, open Services -> NAS and check ProFTPD server.
Now you can upload any content to your router by any FTP client.
Step 2 – connect to router by telnet
My DD-WRT firmware has some problems with SSH so it isn’t possible to use it. It’s not a big deal because we can connect to router by telnet (in Win7 it’s necessary to install it Add or Remove program->Turn Windows Features -> Telnet client). Run Telnet from start menu and type (use IP address based on your own configuration)
