Hi Peter,

One option is to nfs mount a large disk and then log to that. Then you can tail the log from anywhere that can access the nfs server.

This works best when the file server is on the same LAN as the waps. Lack of default logging was due to the wrt54g's lack of local storage and the unavailability of reliable storage at deployment sites.

Hopes this helps,

Problem is, restarting often fixes the problems so there is nothing to see :( Can I access logs or tell it to log the last 24 hours or so so that I can look retroactively when problems are reported?
