      Does anyone know how to see what internet sites have been viewed through a sky SR101 router and how best to keep track of what sites are being visited?

      The SR101 doesn't keep a details log of its activity.

      I don't think any domestic router would be capable of this.

      What is it you are actually trying to monitor?

      Re: Router logs

      Hi Scubbie - I want to give my children some freedom but also make sure in the background that they do not end up regularly using sites that concern me. I read that netgear and most routers logged which sites were visited and the identity of the device / computer. Thanks

      Re: Router logs

      Certainly the more recent Netgear routers (with Netgear Genie) utilise the OpenDNS Parental Controls: Live Parental Controls | Apps | Discover | Home | NETGEAR

      I've not looked into them in any great detail myself, but please take a look at the above link.

      Since you are currently on ADSL, any current Netgear ADSL router would work on your connection. If you are looking to upgrade to Fibre, then it might be worth looking into a Cable router and connect it as shown in the linked thread below.

      Using the DLink DIR613.

      Sadly none of the Sky routers will allow you to control the devices individually or in groups. Personally I would love Sky to offer this. Perhaps they will introduce it at a later date with a new router. We can but hope.

      I only know the Netgear routers as I have a WNDR3800. Perhaps other members could comment on other brands/models?

      Re: Router logs

      Okay many thanks for clarifying for me. I shall probably try to tackle this a different way rather than via the router.
