Router/Event Logs??

Hey so I logged into my router this morning (9am) and was looking through my event log, but its only showing logs from last nigh around 11pm.
I believe that my internet was being kicked offline by someone that got hold of my IP and wanted to see if there was a dos attack on there at all, but it happened around 9pm and the log as far as i can see only shows from 11pm. I was wondering is there anyway to see further back than what i can see initially on the main page. Or is there always only a set history of logs that can be seen?Huh
i was really hoping to find out if they hit my internet or not

Re: Router/Event Logs??

that is usually a symptom of a soft kernel reboot
does the log show that the times are incorrect until it resyncs with the time server

Re: Router/Event Logs??

Im not sure that the times are incorrect at all. This is the first time i have logged into my router to see the logs. My problem is that i want to view activity from 8pm last but as far back as it seems to show is 11pm last night.... should i be able to see logs from all day yesterday? it seems reasonable that i should?

Re: Router/Event Logs??

Now I understand
Yes the log visible via the web interface is heavily truncated
For example mine starts at 01.16 this morning due to a large number of blocked attempts to get in being reported
I believe that you can view a larger number via telnet http://npr.me.uk/telnet.html#stats
I think that the command "syslog msgbuf show" as given in the link
