I have a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router. Can I view the activity on each port in real time? I know how to access the router and log in, but am not familiar enough with it to see activity on each port and the wireless side. Any help would be appreciated.

You can log activity; I believe it shows the ports

It depends on what version and type of software too...If you installed the Linksys assistant or whatever the hell it was on the disk, there's a tool on that.

Apparently the Rabbi is a guru as well.

You just install the software from the CD. You probably only installed the drivers. Every one of those retail routers have a nice little friendly GUI.

Or if you're feeling a little spunky, you could install a different (better) software such as DDWRT or Tomato (what I have on my Linksys WRT 54GL).

Yeah Tomato is nice, I use it.

I'd get a Milwaukee or DeWalt personally. Makita isn't bad either.

Thats the problem with these rinky dink home routers. They don't have the functionality of REAL routers.

If you can afford it, these are kickass routers.

I have 17 of them out in my remote offices.

As it is in most cases you get what you pay for.

That's the kind I was hoping the thread would be about.
