    I have the above router version 1.1 with DD-WRT installed.

    I am using Wallwatcher to log to my PC by redirecting syslogd. If I
    don't redirect this will it still log internally, and if so how do I
    access the log? Can I log wireless activity too?

    I would really like to log activity when my PC is not switched on, so
    I can see if anybody is trying to hack in via WAN or wireless - can I
    do this, if so please point me in the right direction. I tried a
    Safecom router, which I returned due to low power , but this could
    email logs at regular intervals and including wireless associations
    etc- does any wrt54 firmware do this?

    I would also like to capture packets on other LAN ports and also the
    Wireless - is this possible via port mirroring or any other method ?

    Thanks for any advice or URLs you can provide. I've done some
    googling and looked at the dd-wrt site, but I can't find the answers.

    I'm happy to try other firmware if it does the job.

    Did you see "Incoming Log" and "Outgoing Log" buttons in Administration\Log? The remote IPs in this log are not resolved so the log is difficult to read.

    People who need continuous logging install WallWatcher as a service on a PC that is constantly running. There is a write-up somewhere is BroadbandReports.

    I use tofu's Hyperwrt on my WRT54G v2 and have successfully logged activity with WallWatcher and captured packets with Ethereal. I'm not sure if that helps you or not, but I thought I'd add the info.
