    Do wireless routers record websites visited?

    A:

    It is common for wireless routers to provide users with the option to record the IP addresses of websites that connected devices visit, but this logging typically won't tell the website names themselves. Users can use an online address look-up service that converts IP addresses to host names. Third-party Web monitoring software is also available to provide the website names directly and to filter websites, if necessary.
