    Is it at all possible to check browsing history through a router that said computer is connected to even if the end user deletes the history in the browser? And if so, where would I go about looking for it once logged into the router?

    Linksys Wireless router is being used

    Also... Anyone know of a "hidden" key-logger that can be locally installed on a machine connected to the network :mamoru2:

    As for key-loggers, browse cnet. I'm sure they have some free ones that'll work.

    one of my dad's friends is also a dentist. he was having trouble with getting work out of an employee on the weekend. she would clock in and appear to do nothing all day, no one was in the office at the time. she was supposed to do billing etc by herself.
    so, he started searching through his router's logs and found that she was going to myspace the whole time. he got more detailed info on his dsl modem and had to confront her about it

    The best you'll get from a router is source IP/port, destination IP/port. You'll have to do some sleuthing to figure out the rest.

    You can run a packet sniffer attached to the DSL modem/router and probably grab everything ... I've done it on my home network a bunch of random time in the past. Etherreal was what I used. :big grin:

    Set up your own firewall. Put it on a cheap PC and throw in a packet inspector. Route traffic and control what goes in and out. :)
