I knew the router logged, but didn't realize it would send the log to a 
PC. This is good.

I may have even installed it... but, it does require the PC to be 
running when the router sends the log (doesn't it??? Or does the logger 
pull the log?). This may be a problem for many households such as my 
own, where the PCs are powered down when they aren't being used. If the 
logger pulls the logs, and DShield doesn't mind intermittent reporting, 
then I'm happy to oblige!

I will look into this.
