Hi all, first time poster here.

I like the feature of the router that emails all the logs, but it's so much data I can't make much sense of it. Are there any tools or scripts any of you guys use to analyze the logs and generate a report?

If not, sounds like a fun coding project  Grin

You can adjust the D-Link router to send it's log via syslog to one of your computers in your LAN.
On this computer you are installing Wallwatcher which collects all the loginformation from the router for you.

That seems like the easiest approach; however, none of the computers on my LAN are running syslogd that I know of. Thanks anyway though!

Maybe you don't understand right.
Syslog is running on the computer when you have installed Wallwatcher.
On the router you just adjust the syslog settings and enter the IP address of the computer where you have Wallwatcher running. The router is than sending the information to the computer and Wallwatcher is loging everthing.

OH! That makes sense. My computer's not on all the time, but this will definitely be worth a look! Thanks a bunch.
