    OpenDNS LPC does not come with stats and logs, but your router has a logging feature ("View Logs of Web Access or Attempted Web Access").  See if this fits your needs.  The remaining options are to look into the browser history on the devices or to install a sniffer.

    LPC really needs stats. I know there are other ways to view the browsing history of devices, but having stats would be much more convenient!

    The stats in NetGear routers only show HTTP traffic, not HTTPS traffic. This a real shame. As such, OpenDNS could really use some kind of stats feature.

    Feel free to disable the router's LPC and to use the normal OpenDNS Home instead.  This gives you stats and logs for all DNS traffic.  (A DNS service like OpenDNS cannot see your HTTP and HTTPS traffic.)

    If your computers are running Windows you could try Windows Family Safety for logging

    Hi

    This may be more than you want, but ill state it as others may find this useful.

    Routers usually can output something called a SYSLOG and that can be sent to your PC.

    You then just need something to help you read it. something like "Wallwatcher" which is free

    You can then identify the IP address you are monitoring or the IP address of the web site etc.

    So this way is a bit more work then just one click, but its the one that tells you what has your router been doing for the users on your network.
