    I am thinking about getting the Asus N66U (Dark Knight) and using the tomato firmware. On the screen shoots page it has a page that lists recent websites visited / recent web searches. I am thinking about getting this router and using this firmware just for that feature. My question is, how many recent websites/web searches are saved? A limited number or as much as there is room in the router's storage?

    This is the page im talking about.

    I've put 500 for both on my Asus RT-N16. No problems encountered. But this is in a home environment, with about 15 devices. I have excluded my own 3 devices from results since I already know what sites I go to or what search queries I conduct.

    EDIT: Sorry, from reading your question, I'm not sure my answer was helpful. Anyway, you can configure this at that "Web Monitor Configuration" link below the tables. No idea if you can save as much as you want as space is available without any consequences.

    I see you can set it to how many you want saved last? There is no screenshot of the "web monitor config" so I didnt know. I was hoping to get one and set it for maybe 5,000 for each.

    Only way to know is to try. I've set 2000 with no issues here.

    Also you can create daily backups. Log to cifs or usb and the upper limit becomes your available disk space.

    The simple answer to your simple question: 9999 is the highest number that can be specified for each.

    FYI the log misses a few things.

    IF the same IP goes to the same website/does the same search term, the new time is recorded and the old website/search is removed from the entry.

    Also HTTPS and other secured protocols aren't logged either.

    Indeed, and as google switched to https by default a while back, most searches are now missing. Nothing that can be done, it's good for privacy I guess :)
