Default how to monitor router activity

We are using Netgear Router in most offices in Northern California offices.

Most are Net gear router modele MR814 & WGR614, 4 wired ports and 1 wireless
port; and WG311 wireless adapters.

Is there anyway to monitor the router activity? Anyway to see which port
(wired and wireless) is active and network traffic. Also, want to make sure
nobody outside our approved users is using the wireless ports?

We know about the router log in the router set up page (from all ports, all
mixed), showing what URL is contacted and time stamped.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Too bad Netgear does not include this utility with their router.
We are concern with intruders to the wireless ports.
The log included is of not much use.

Default 6696519

We are using WEP.

Very often, sometimes weekly, somebody from some district offices, would not able to login to get online. I know, its simple encryption KEY. But, somebody will never able to get online, to work on their quote sheets or corporate dates, etc. Then, they go cry to their bosses, then, their bosses, made calls to tech support managers, and then, we get scream at.

Yuck.

You should tell them that some kids are stealing data because you authorize to keep un-encrypted so that whoever complain can not get on the network.

see what he says.. I bet he wanted to be encrypted..

I guess you have just deal with it..

Yuck.
As IT department (or some sort of), surely you know the minimum security requirements for both wired and wireless connections?
