Could anyone write a small program to log the Signal-to-Noise figures for a Netgear DG834 router?

Could anyone write a small program to log the Signal-to-Noise figures
for a Netgear DG834 router?

I have been getting very variable SNR readings - and I would like to
collect some evidence to analyse.

What is needed is a program that logs into the router's html page every
minute, and then extracts the time and the SNR figure, and writes a line
of a text file.

I reckon it would be useful to many people.

Hi Chris
Could anyone write a small program to log the Signal-to-Noise figures
for a Netgear DG834 router?

many people could, I'm sure, if not quite _anyone_

I see.

Good, you've got the 'top level' of what you need. How would you break
that down into smaller steps?

I reckon it would be useful to many people.


great - thanks!

I'm sure that nobody here is willing to write it for you. However, I
believe that jkn was right in trying to get you to solve the problem.
;)

You know what you need to do, but how are you going to do it? Create a
flow chart ;)

Sure, though I don't have a Netgear DG834.

Maybe you could, uh, enable remote administration and publish the admin
password here, and those of us without that equipment could access yours
in order to test out the script as we write it. ;-)

ok, i don't see URL and password here, so try: urllib2 (maybe
mechanize), then beautiful soup. maybe another HTML parser ...

Are you offering to pay somebody to do it, or just suggesting a project
for some Python programmer who is bored and looking for a small project to
work on out of love?

Chris, How would a wireless router show a signal to noise ratio?
Especially if it's providing the signal?

On a web page.

It receives as well. At least mine does. Data goes both in
and out.

The Netgear DG834 is a wired router.
Its statistics page gives line loss and SNR.

Yes, Steven, the latter. Sometimes programmers need an idea for a
project - and, for them, knowing that someone would actually value what
they did might make it more fun for them.

hey i would help
i am noob at programming but this will give me good experiance.
please contact me and on the subject write router SNR issue
cuz i get a lot of mail and most i don't open but then i will be able to
spot yours.
hope i can help.
