Using WallWatcher with DD-WRT

by on Oct.13, 2010, under Technology

I just installed WallWatcher on my Linksys54G router running DD-WRT.

I recommend setting up static IP address for MAC address the computer you’re installing DD-WRT on, if you haven’t already.

Settings needed in DD-WRT:

Services tab, Services sub-tab:

SNMP section:

SNMP: Enable
Location: Unknown
Contact: root
Name: dd-wrt
RO Community: public
RW Community: private

System Log section:

Syslogd: Enable
Remote Server: [IP address of the computer you're installing WallWatcher on]

Security tab, Firewall sub-tab:

Log Management section:

Log: Enable
Log Level: High

Settings needed in WallWatcher Options:

Router tab:

Router: DD-WRT

Bandwidth tab:

Collect bandwidth usage: checked
From: snmp
Every: 30 sec (you can change this if you’d like)

SNMP OID’s section:

UpTime: 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.3.0
Received: 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.10.8
Sent: 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.16.8

  • get router ip

    Good post, but it doesn’t seem to work together with my router ip address, any hints?

    Instructions work wonderfully with DD-WRT standard-small! Thanks!

  • paul

    worked like a charm, thanx!

    Sir, this is the plainest and most straightforward example of how to set this up, i owe you a beer.
    Thank you ever so much.
    (im posting a link to this page in the dd-wrt forum).

    Many thanks!!

    This was helpful, but I still needed to do one more thing before WallWatcher would log web traffic work for me. I needed to go to the Security tab under the DD-WRT control panel, and enable the options for Dropped, Rejected, and Accepted under “Log Management”. At least, I think that was the crucial change I made. I was trying all sorts of things and was almost ready to give up. In any case, it works now.

    Thanks for posting the useful information on the web.

    I too had to go to the Security tab under the DD-WRT control panel, and enable the options for Dropped, Rejected, and Accepted under “Log Management”. That was the key to make it work for me. Great info!!!
