    Do wireless broadband routers keep a history or log file similar to IE's
    history file?

  2. Hi
    IE keeps the history of the URLs that you visited.
    Some Routers keep a log of the traffic that passes through them, there might
    be variation in the info that is logged between Router's models and brands.
    Example of my Router's log:

    Look at your Router's Manual to see if and how your Router keeps the log (if
    it is keeping one).

    The D-link models I own only keep a 20 page FIFO log with no memory
    retention after rebooting or a power reset. Details reported are mainly
    debug info, attacks, computer connections to the network etc. depending on
    what reporting options were set. The only way to keep a running record is to
    have the logs emailed to yourself, which is a built in feature.
