Software to monitor router (2704n) line statistics

Is anyone aware of software that will allow continuous monitoring of Plusnet 2704n? I can't get this router to work with routerstats or DSLstats (can't login). Is there anything similar out there that will do the job?

Re: Software to monitor router (2704n) line statistics

What are you trying to measure using the line stats? If you're on a fibre connection the router is acting purely as a gateway so it doesn't know about SNR, sync speed,error rates,  attenuation etc...

 

If you want that kind of info then buy a combined VDSL modem router or an unlocked Huawei Openreach modem.

Re: Software to monitor router (2704n) line statistics

I just want to monitor basic parameters (Sync Speed and SNR Margin) on my ADSL connection to confirm that a reported fault has actually been fixed.

I can see all these details when I manually login to the Plusnet (Sagemcom) 2704n (http://192.168.1.254/expert_user.html > Device Info > Statistics > xDSL) but cannot seem to access them to continually monitor the router status.

I used to use the superb Routerstats program (http://vwlowen.co.uk/internet/files.htm) with my old Thomson TG585v8 but as part of the 'fix' I had to upgrade to the 2704n and it doesn't seem compatible with this (or any other software) I can find - possibly due to the way the login works.

I was really wondering if anyone knows of any off-the-shelf software that would enable this simple monitoring requirement.
