    Router Logs

    Did a quick search and didnt see anything that caught my eye.
    I have a personal network at my house. On the router it says Linksys, but I have a box by it that says D-Link Ethernet 10/100 Adapter. We have 3 home computers on our little network. I was wondering if the router creates and logs the websites that it connects to, kinda like ZoneAlarm does. I am pretty sure it does, I was wondering where these logs are stored. I am not sure if it helps, but I use Windows XP.

    If you have a Linksys router you should be able to connect to it's configuration setup by using your internet browser. You need to have the local IP address of your router in order to connect however which you should be able to locate via the router's manual.

    I apologize for the vague info but I do not use a Linksys router yet I have set them up for people.

    Enter 192.168.1.1 in your internet explorer's title bar. The password for the box should be admin:admin. It should then bring you to a site, click on logs. Then you can click on either outgoing access logs, or imcoming access log. Or at least with router, this is how it works.

    Thank you,
    I found out the routers IP and the logs. Problem tho, the logs were disabled, so there is not a single one there. I dont know if this was the default. I was wondering, is there any other way to track internet use with out downloading some program. We have HistoryKill/PopupKill, which takes care of your basic History and Internet Temps. I was wondering is there another way to see where someone has been. I was looking at the ZoneAlarm logs, and it like makes one big log so teh whole day, which is kinda hard to read. Anyways, Thanks for the help and thanks for anymore help you guys can provide me.

    The default for linksys routers is to have logging off. Also, the linksys boxes are not exactly computing powerhouses; their logging is rather limited. If you really want to do any serious logging, you would probably want Ethereal or Packetyzer. However, both of these tools have a pretty steep learning curve.
