The Theory

Many ADSL modem/routers do not provide a means to continuously monitor their statistics. Of particular importance are the statistics associated with the incoming telephone line - generally referred to collectively as Line Stats. Since the advent of ADSL-Max and ADSL2(+), line stats of special relevance are the Downstream Noise Margin and the Sync Rate.

Both of these terms are often referred to by other names. The Downstream Noise Margin may be called simply the 'Noise Margin' or the 'Noise Ratio' or the 'SNR' and it represents the amount of 'elbow room' the router has available to cope with unwanted noise on the telephone line. Its value is measured in Decibels - usually abbreviated to dB.

The Sync Rate is often called the 'Connection Speed' or 'Line Speed' and indicates the speed which the router and the remote telephone exchange hardware have 'negotiated' and agreed on to represent the maximum possible speed that data could be transferred over the telephone line. Note that, for a variety of reasons, the actual data speed is often much less than the sync rate. It is usually measured in Kbps.

Because these two values can often change while the router is unattended (for example, while downloading at night), it's sometimes useful to be able to monitor and record these values and that's where RouterStats comes in.

Click here for some example plots.

RouterStats monitors both the downstream and upstream Noise Margin and Connection Speed values and plots them on graphs. RouterStats also provides two additional user-defined graphs for monitoring any other two values that may be available on your router's "stats" page.

With the Netgear DG834, DG834G, DG834GT, DG834N, DG834PN, DG2000 and DGN2000 series of routers, RouterStats is also able to automatically establish a Telnet connection for access to additional statistical data. From version 4.3 I've added support for the 'unofficial' DGTeam firmware (hopefully).

I've added the facility to "bypass" the quirky Netgear telnet login and use the more conventional method. The telnet prompt, chipset and command-set can be selected. This may possibly make some of the telnet facilities in RouterStats available to other routers besides the Netgears. It does work with the D-Link DSL-504T, 2640B and 2740B, for example. Please note that this is a totally unsupported feature.

How it Works

Please note that RouterStats is NOT Plug and Play! (But see below for a version that is!)

All routers are different and you will need to do some detective work and have some understanding of how to display the router's pages in your browser and RouterStats may not even work with your router. It should be possible to configure it to work with other routers provided their "stats" are accessible as a simple HTML page - ie without Frames - in your web browser but please bear in mind that RouterStats is primarily designed to work with the Netgear DG834 series.

RouterStats is configured, virtually ready-to-run, with versions 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Netgear DG834, DG834G, DG834GT, DG834N, DG834PN, DG2000/DGN2000 & DGN3300/DGND3300 series and the Thomson ST585 v6 & v7 and the TG582n/TG587n routers.

With any of these routers, you should only need to enter your own username and password to be up and running.

RouterStats incorporates its own fully up-to-date Help file but you can view a copy here if you want to look at it in advance. (Note that this online file isn't always kept up to date - the latest version will always be included with the program).

The Help file provides details of the following additional routers (thanks to feedback from other users):

  • Belkin F5D7630-4A (UK)
  • D-Link DSL-502T, DSL-504T (Check the "Use source B" checkbox - see FAQ - Q4)
    Telnet also works by selecting the AR7 chipset and checking the Experimental checkbox.

  • Draytek Vigor 2600G
  • Linksys WAG54G
  • Linksys HG200
  • Linksys WAG160N
  • Linksys WAG200G
  • Linksys WAG354G
  • Netgear DM111P (Check the "Use source A" checkbox - see FAQ - Q4)
  • Orange Livebox (Inventel)
  • Speedtouch 510 v4 (Firmware 4.3.2.6) (Works partly. Rx Noise and Rx Sync OK)
  • Speedtouch 585 v6 & v7
  • Voyager 2100 (+ probably 2110 and possibly 2019)
  • Voyager 220V (Check the "Use source A" checkbox - see FAQ - Q4)
  • Zoom X5v

If your router isn't listed, it doesn't necessarily mean that RouterStats won't work with it but there are some routers that are difficult or impossible to configure RouterStats for. Your router may be listed for RouterStats-Lite (below).

Although I have absolutely NO experience with Linux myself (so please don't ask :)), apparently RouterStats and RouterStats -Lite can be coaxed into running under Linux: kitz.co.uk - Linux Forum

RouterStats incorporates a simple webserver so you can keep an eye on the graphs online. View my own router's stats here if my server is switched on).

RouterStats -Lite ~~ A 'cut down' Plug and Play version

Very often, the ability to monitor just your downstream noise margin and connection speed for a few days will be enough to help you locate the source of problems with your ADSL connection without all the "bells and whistles" that RouterStats provides. RouterStats -Lite is a simplified version which needs hardly any setting up and works virtually 'out of the box' with the routers listed below. It could also work with similar routers which are from the same "stable" as those listed.

RouterStats -Lite also has a "user-defined" router which should allow you to configure it to work with other routers not listed. This option isn't plug-n-play but should be relatively easy to set up.

(Details)

Note: The latest version will contain bug fixes and new features in addition to extra routers so is always worth downloading.


[*] Note that RouterStats-Lite will only work with routers which use a popup dialogue box for Username & Password login. It will not work with routers which use an 'embedded' webpage for login. Unfortunately, some router manufacturers are changing the method of login to the webpage type which means that some routers which once worked with RouterStats-Lite may no longer work. I'll note these changes below as and when I'm notified.
