Good question I don't know what format the data is in.  However I checked the DShield Universal Firewall Client and the Dlink router is listed (not my specific version though).  Under WallWatcher the DI-804 is listed and I think the DI-808 is a 8 port version of the 804.  But those are windows clients.

Under Linux clients there is a DI-604 listed but it doesn't look like what I am looking for.  My idea was to have my 808 send its logs via syslog to the wallplug.  Then every 24 hours the wallplug would change the data from syslog to the dshield format and then send it to dshield.
