    Counting WAP connections

    Locked

    by colonel debugger ·

    I work in a library that has a wireless access point for the public to connect to the internet. We use a Linksys WRT54GC, unsecured and completely open, so users do not have to log in. We need to collect statistics on how many connections are made to the WAP, but this model doesn’t have the logging capability to do this. Is there a workaround for this, or possibly a separate product that can log and save these statistics?

      Logging feature

      According to this website: http://www.practicallynetworked.com/review.asp?pid=610
      this unit has impressive logging.

      “The WRT54GC provides extensive logging capability, maintaining four distinct logs? incoming, outgoing, security, and DHCP? so you don’t have to sift through one mega-log to find particular types of entries. You can also output to syslog, but annoyingly, you have to specify an IP address in the syslog field even if you don’t plan to use syslog. Without specifying an address, you can’t enable even the internal log feature.”
