How can I get a Linksys WRT54G to log all sites viewed from a specific MAC address?
How can I get a Linksys WRT54G to log all websites viewed from a specific local IP (192.168.1.xxx), or MAC address?
Here's the story:
I'm 15, and we share a wireless internet connection with our basement tenants. My mom received some message from Telus complaining about copyright infringement. She insists that this is my doing, but I have not downloaded anything for at least 3 months. My suspicion is that our basement tenants are the culprit. How can I prove this?
I read half of the email and fell asleep
I've attached it.
How can I prove to my parents that I am not the one doing illegal downloads?
Thanks for your help.
OH MY GOD i should have read the freakin bottom of that!!
What do we do call the cops??

First of all, I do not think you should call the cops. If the cops contact you, do not talk to them under any circumstance without the presence of a lawyer. Since you haven't been ordered to preserve evidence, I suggest you securely wipe your hard drive unless you are certain no relevant files have been on it.
Honestly, you should not be sharing an internet connection with people that you don't trust. Clearly, your basement tenets cannot be trusted. Discuss this with your mom and refer her to this post if necessary.
If possible, I would just put a WPA password on the wireless network so your neighbors are locked out.

Content of this nature would be illegal and therefore can't be copyrighted.
>> time zone: 0
There is no timezone "0".
This looks "strange". Are you sure the email you got is legitimate or a hoax?
I agree with the previous post that you should never share your internet connection.
You can track what other people do on a network by using something called "netflow". This is not so easy, though.

Porn's illegal? I thought it was fine once you turn 18. I'm in Canada though.
The network is encrypted with WEP, but we split the bill 50/50. Maybe I should just change it and act like their computer is the problem
I'll look into the message being a hoax, but I don't see what data the hoaxer (is that a word?) could get from that.
I was googling the situation and came across a program called Wireshark, but when I tried to install it, it kept complaining about something along the lines of needing "X11".
EDIT: Next time I'm at my moms computer, I'll get the extended headers for that message. I'm currently away from home for the weekend.
