    i have a wrt54g-tm router with v24 mega on it. i want to be able to track traffic. as in seeing which sites a particular computer went to and the time/day

    this is for legitimate reasons, the router will be installed in my dad's dental office. he's gone over the internet policy with his workers, he just needs a way of tracking activity.

    i was thinking about doing the following, just wondering if there was something easier/better

    or he can just use open DNS with a blacklist.

    Open dns does both for free with basic reporting, and for $10/year it gives better reports
