  1. Looking for a wireless router that can email its traffic logs on aperiodic basis...

    I need a wireless router that can email its traffic logs on a periodic
    basis. I thought this would be a common option, but apparently, no one
    on earth decided to make this a feature on their routers. p

    The only one I found that does this is the Netgear WGR614.
    Unfortunately, the WGR614 is a steaming piece of crap. P Based on
    the reviews all over the net, I'd say it has about a 50% defect rate.
    But it was the only one I found that would email its logs, so I got
    one anyway. And whatdyaknow... mine ended up being defective.

    Another one of the problems I had was finding a router that allowed
    for mail server authentication. I had an older Netgear router (which
    worked fine, btw) that had "email traffic log" options, but it didn't
    have anywhere to put in authentication for the mail server, so the
    email with the log would never get sent.

    So if anyone has experience with a reliable router that they know for
    a fact can email its traffic logs, then please (oh please, oh please)
    let me know.

    The Dlink routers that I have (DI-604 and DI-624) have an option to email
    the logs - as useless as the logs are, but there is no way to handle email
    authentication. I have made several attempts to have this entered as a
    defect or a request for change or *anything* but in all the interaction I
    have had with Dlink email tech support, they dont even understand the issue!
    They kept telling me I had to open ports to allow outgoing email..... lol

    Yeah... there are several models (such as D-Link and LevelOne) that
    can email logs, but the logs are just worthless junk (like router
    status and IP assignments and crap). I can't believe it's this hard to
    find a router that will email traffic logs.
