router web logs

Hi guys

 

I wanted to find out website accessed via wifi on this router. I went to tools, network status and then network logs however it lists few ones with error numbers but not actually list of websites used via wifi. How can I check what websites have been used via our wifi.

 

 

Thanks

Re: router web logs

I'm not really a techie person but I thought browsing history could be tracked  via the router? Is there anyway to find out what websites visited using our wifi, the router is hub 3.

Re: router web logs

No.

Whilst some routers offer that functionality, HUB3 aint one of them.

Im not trying to be awkward, its just thats not what your HUB does. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, you could try looking at browser history, cache or temp files, but you aren't going to be able to track anything HUB end....

Re: router web logs

Logs are a standard feature of most routers. Why not Virgin Hub?

Re: router web logs

access logs are not logged by many routers.

Plus you can;t even tell what is being accessed if its SSL (HTTPS) only the ip address accessed as as most servers have more then one site on its impossible now the web is SSL

Re: router web logs

DPI, deep packet inspection, is what you required, but it’s not available on most “home” routers.

Re: router web logs

Even on routers that do feature deep packet inspection you still won't be able to simply see a log of an end users browser history due to HTTPS which the vast majority of sites employ these days due to the easy availability with services such as Let's Encrypt.

If you have a device you specifically need to monitor, a laptop belonging to your child for example, you'd be better off installing device management software or parental software.

Re: router web logs

Hi sorry to resurrect this but have a similar question...

...I can see what's currently connected to my Super Hub, it displays the MAC address, assigned IP address, Device Name etc.   But is it possible to see the history of what device has been connected to the Super Hub?  Can't see anything to access logs from the Hub's menu, but is there another method - maybe using the CMD Command Propt interface via windows? 

Thanks for any advice.

Re: router web logs

The Hub doesn't have any remote terminal exposed to customers, and I don't believe it has a historical client list.
For features like that you'd need to buy a router which has those features and use it with the Hub in modem mode.
