    Default Can I get browsing history from my router?

    Can you check your history through your router? My sister is very good with computers, and she has the wireless router in her room.

    Can she see all the websites I've been on? She hinted something about this ages ago but I didn't believe her. But I'm quite worried about her knowing about the websites i've been on. (If you get what i'm talking about guys )


    I have a Thompson Speedtouch wireless router.

    Thanks

    If someone controls the network, they can view all of the traffic on the network.

    As long as your sister controls the wireless, she controls you.

    You are going to look so damned pretty with her underwear on your head (heheh).

    How would she be able to do this though?
    step by step, please

    Is there any way to block her?

    Depending on the router, it may be as simple as activating IP logging in the software, or it may require her to use some third-party software, but as long as she's the admin on the router, it's extremely easy to log websites.

    As far as stopping her, you can always redirect through a proxy, but if I saw someone doing that on my logs, that's gonna be a quick MAC ban. Or at least that's what I would do if I cared enough to log what someone else was doing on my router.

    Does she also have the outgoing internet connection in her room?

    She has a phone wire plug in her room. And that wire goes to the modem. And the power cable too.
    She has a PC and uses the ethernet cable.
    I do know the password for my router though.


    There must be some way for her to stop from being able to do this! Someone, please.

    The only way to really stop it is to use an SSL proxy outside the house. Not very easy to get or get set up

    You have only a few choices: stop surfing those sites, or figure out some way to come to a truce with her. As long as she knows more about the network and computers than you do, she is the one in control. Period, end of story. Knowledge is power

    Read and believe:

    When someone owns the network routers/admin, they own the users and their network traffic.

    You are a user. Your sister is the owner.

    But I know the admin password too and when I type my IP in my browser and then click 'router event logs', It just comes up with a list of IP's and times and weather it was a 'sucess' or not.
    It doesn't say the websites.

    If you know the password to get into your router, why not just get into it and change the login and password so that she can't get into the router herself anymore?
