I've got a brand new Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 wireless router (my Netgear at home went "the way of the buffalo"). I cannot read the log files like I did in the NetGear (or in the LinkSys previous to it). The Buffalo logfiles don't seem to include the IP addresses and names and addresses of the sites that we visit (like the NetGear and LinkSys did).

Any suggestions on how to achieve this? I've got everything checked in the logfile options and still no sign of a visit to a website. I'm also trying Wall Watcher to see if I can get this info. Although it misidentifies the router I do get the traffic from it. Funny thing is if I specify the correct router, I get no traffic from it.

I'm about to hook another NetGear router into the mix just to get the traffic logged (sorta like a backwards hookup of a wireless access point) just to get the info.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Hmm... Most routers vary from options. The only thing I could suggest is look for a firmware update, or, see if you could find someplace that has a firmware for it, but different config page software.
