    I have a netgear Wireless wgr614v4 router and a wg511
    pcmcia card. I've enabled WEP security and restricted MAC
    addresses. Is there any way by which I can monitor the
    wireless activity(of the router), apart from using
    Wireless Connection> Properties?

    Also, any advice on enabling logging router activity is
    also greatly appreciated, because this router
    configuration utility provides logging of attempted visits
    to blocked sites.

    Your router should ahve an activity log that you can
    enable/disable. This logs all attempts to obatin access
    to your router and will give you the MAC address of the
    attempts..... You can save this as a txt file for later
    use... If your running WEP and MAC filtering, I wouldn't
    worry about it. I have the same settings and my logfile
    only lists my own accesses over the last year....
    The average user doesn't know how to break WEp and spoof
    MAC addresses....besides, there's lot's of open access
    points out there, so why make it difficult... :)
