How do I generate Logs in my G54 gateway?
The G54 gateway's performance and operation information can be viewed by generating logs.  These logs are separated into three categories: System Logs, Event Logs, and Firewall Logs.  This document describes how to generate, print, and save the System, Event, and Firewall Logs using the Web Manager. 

Generate the G54 Logs
  1. Launch a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.  Enter into the address box, and press the Enter key.     
  2. A security or private risk alert may appear on the web browser advising users to proceed with caution when accessing the Web Manager.  There is no risk in proceeding to the Web Manager.  For instructions to bypass the alert screen, refer to article 18181 - Alert Message for Web Manager Access.

    NOTE: The Home Network Wizard will appear if this is the first time accessing the Web Manager.  For assistance with the wizard, refer to article 19497 - G54: Web Manager First Time Login.
  3. On the Login page, enter the custom password in the Password field.  The Username field is populated with admin.
