I have recently installed DD-WRT on my D-Link DIR-615 router. Everything seems fine but I cannot connect to some FTP servers (web hosting) anymore. Any ideas what can cause this issue?
I wonder if you're experiencing an issue with passive mode and these sites. As I understand it the ftp site makes a connection back to you, perhaps dd-wrt's firewall is blocking these back connections to your ftp client upon connecting?

I've discovered something interesting.
I've set up a port range forwarding 1024-65535 | Both | 192.168.1.131 (my local ip)
Just for the testing purposes, I know it's not a good idea at all. After that I have Enabled or Disabled (it doesn't really matters it seems) the UPnP service. Well, after doing that it let me connect to FTP but just for a few seconds.
Can anyone explain what is going on?
