Hi

 

I am after a modem not just any modem tho

 

It needs parental controls that can

 

Log and Store logs or email me the logs of every single url visited through the said modem. Not just one's that I have gone through and blocked manually 

 

Also with Time Stamps and if possible IP address too

 

 

 

I know there are modems out there like this but I need it to come from someone that has used it and knows it works.

 

Kids are getting older now and I need to be able to monitor everything they are doing through the wifi, instead of me going to there devices all the time to see what they are viewing.

 

 

 

We currently using an ADSL 2+ modem.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Sure, you would be able to log the unencrypted HTTP traffic transparently, there's plenty of options for that. But one of the challenges you will is that many websites today use HTTPS by default, which makes it difficult for a router to log the URLs being visited. It's not impossible to make it work but it's a bit of a hassle.

 

You would need a MITM proxy (Squid maybe) that can decrypt the SSL/TLS encrypted traffic, and would also need to sign and install your own CA on every device on the local network. I did look into doing this myself, it's just not worth the hassle for me. 

 

I have three children that are hitting the important ages, so I can understand your concern. In my situation, we have made the constraints social rather than technical; e.g. talk to the kids and let them know what is acceptable usage, all internet usage of devices happens out in common areas where there are others around (e.g. devices and laptops at the kitchen table or on the sofa), no phones in the bedroom, school laptops are for learning and absolutely nothing else, etc.

 

And then if the kids figure out what a VPN is, well... Kids will always try to find a way around technical measures.
