Well im new around here but there seems to be much good advice but none that specificly helps me.

Im with WxC on there fusion plan and found out that im being charged for a phone line and not using it. So i plan to buy a router to use it. Without doing much reasearch (yet) as i dont know my specfic needs heres the question.

I need some form of client usage monitoring, i.e. statistics on each mac address that uses the router and how much data goes through it. Ideally id like to limit the data for each client but that is not nessasary. What is this feature called and does the WAG54GP2 support it? the Manual was useless at explaing the specfic function of this router. Or does anyone know what this function is called so i can reasearch it???

Or ultiimatly what modem/router does support this feature.

I have a wag54gp2 and I have looked extensively into this - doesn't appear to be possible.

It can export netflow logs - but that only reports on the level of traffic going in and out of each port i.e each of the four ethernet ports, the wireless and the wan.

For more tracking then that you either need to look into the Linksys WRT54GL (which is the version which you can flash a linux based rom one) this can do almost anything I am lead to belive.

Otherwise you are probably looking at commercial gear such as a managed cisco switch/router.

I don't think that you will find a router that does voip and the usage monitoring - probably best to get an pots->voip adapter, on xnet I think the device for this is the papt2
