I would like to log HTTP traffic through Orcon Genius. We all have 4 laptops, 2 smartphones, a tablet, an internet-connected TV, and game console. I'd like to know what internet traffic each device is causing.
Initially I was hoping I could do this with just the Orcon Genius. Unfortunately, The firmware UI doesn't allow it. Fortunately, it runs Linux, so I could enable it. And fortunately, it is running a telnet service open to the LAN. Unfortunately, no username/password combination I tried worked. Furthermore, Orcon support say "this service has been locked down in the firmware. There is nothing we can do to get this open for you.", which sounds suspiciously like nonsense to me: Why have telnetd running at all if it can't be used? Either they forgot to turn it off when customising the BoB2 firmware, or there really is a secret username/password somewhere that will let me get shell access so I can try to set up some logging. I've given up on Orcon support; they haven't been able to suggest any useful ideas for logging traffic.
So, what are my other options for being able to log traffic?
Should I get a switch with wireless, hook it up to orcon, and connect all my devices to the switch? And run some openwrt-derived software on the switch? If so, any switch recommendations?
Should I get a simple ADSL modem and get the orcon genius to access the internet via LAN to the modem? Will openwrt on a plain modem be able to tell the traffic apart for different devices in the LAN, or would the orcon genius already have done some sort of translation?
Any other ideas?
