If i wanted to check and see specific sites that were visited through wireless devices in my house, how would I go about doing that? I think my router doesnt have that function built in. Its a WNR2000v2 and im hearing i have to download a third party software? I downloaded WallWatcher but when I click "auto-select: it just says "starting" and never logs anything. Is there an easy way to seeing the browsing history or is it better to just go get a new router?

The full manual for you router here. It really depends on how you set it up.

ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/products/WNR2000v2/Documentation/UM/WNR2000v2_UM_15JAN2010.pdf

http://www.routerlogin.net

Or copy and paste the following: 192.168.1.1. in your browser address bar.

User name is admin and the password is password

You should now have a 'plethora' of options. Take care to make a note of the options via the 'save' button.

But the log doesnt list the individual websites that were visited, just the devices that were connected to the network. Is there a software I can download or do I need to buy a new router?
