A friend of mine had a back window smashed in at night, nothing was stolen, but the suspicion is that it was someone they know well. Well enough so that they have the wifi stored on their phone and it might have auto-connected at that time of night.


I was trying to find connection logs for them through the web interface of the HG659, but the only logs I could find were system-level stuff. My Netgear router logs the MAC address + IP address whenever an IP gets assigned to a device. Does the HG659 log that kind of data in some way and if so, how can I get to that data?


Thanks a lot for your help!

I don't think the HG659 logs associations and de-associations as the logs would be huge. If you had an enterprise grade router you could log something to Radius but that isn't the case.


So I don't think that will be a path for sleuthing.


One thing I can't seem to remember is under the devices list which should have every device that has ever connected to the AP if that includes the last time they connected, but I don't think it does.

Assuming your not pushing the 659b mac table limit, the device last lease time might be what your looking for but there a tons of reasons why this wouldnt be trustable for a conviction.
