As I mentioned in the introduction, configuring RouterStats requires some detective work and an understanding of how your router displays its statistics in your web browser.
So, the best way to start your sleuthing is by displaying your router's Stats page in your browser. If you're lucky, it will be a simple page showing the stats we want to monitor. More often than not, though, the section of the page showing the stats will either be in a webpage 'Frame' or will be displayed as a pop-up window after clicking a link or pressing a button.
Your objective is to narrow your search for the page down until you have the simplest
"stand-alone" page which contains the stats.
Here's part of the main page which my router displays when I log in. In order to get to the Noise Margin figure that I'm interested in, I need to press the Show Statistics button. This brings up the pop-up window shown (in part) below:
|Our objective is to determine the actual
URL we need to type into the browser's Address Bar in order to display this page
Unfortunately, in this particular case, only the main part of the URL http://192.168.0.1 is shown on the pop-up window's Title Bar so a bit more detective work is required.
As this pop-up window is constantly being refreshed, we may need to click its Stop button. Then, if we right-click on the pop-up window, we can select This Frame - view frame source, and get the full URL from the source window's title bar.
Here, in this Netgear DG834, it's
Once we have that URL, we should be able to type it in the browser's Address Bar and display the page directly. We are then finally ready to begin configuring RouterStats.
The following URLs assume the manufacturer's default:
Netgear DG834(G) v1 and v2 (Noise & Sync should be found automatically)
