track thru router

I know that you can see places where your son has been on the internet. If you feel those site are bad, you can block access to it.

Not through my router

It only logs DHCP requests to the ISP and DHCP leases ganted to computers connected to it -- no log of URLs or IP addresses in packets passing through.

Obviously, it can decode these because it can block them -- but it does not log them.
