Debugging information may help solve complex setup or troubleshooting issues.
On the 'Diagnostics' page, you can check the network connections, view and save the router system log, configure network traffic capture, enable the debug mode, and view a list of active connections with the ports used.
1. In the 'Network connection test' section, you can test the connection to the Internet directly from your Keenetic using the ping and traceroute network utilities. In the 'Host address' field, specify the host's IP address or domain name which you want to test and click the 'Start the test' button. Click 'Show settings' to configure more settings.
2. In the 'System log' section, you can view the system log where system events are logged. To view the system log, click 'Show log'. To save the log (system log.txt file), click 'Save to computer'.
Keenetic routers can send a system log containing warnings, system messages, etc., to a special Syslog server designed to collect and store system messages (logs). To do this, enable the 'Use Syslog' option and specify the IP address of the Syslog server in the 'Server Address' field that will appear. For example:
3. In the 'Debug Mode' section, you can enable advanced diagnostics, including detailed logging to the system event log for Internet connections (IPoE, PPPoE, L2TP, PPTP, UsbModem, IPv6) and DHCP server/client.
NOTE: Important! Please do not enable debug mode without a request from a technical support engineer. If you want to give the primary diagnostics to the technical support, save it according to the instruction 'Saving the self-test system file' and send it to the support service.
If the service engineer has asked you to enable debug mode, follow the steps below. Click the 'Enable debug mode' button.
NOTE: Important! After enabling or disabling debugging, the current connections will be forcibly re-established.
Thus, if the purpose of enabling the debug mode is to see the reasons for the interruption of the connection to the ISP, you should wait for the issue to happen after the initially planned reconnection.
After the debug mode is enabled, the message about the date and time of debugging start will appear.
When the problem occurs or repeats itself, press the 'Stop debugging' button.
After that, the self-test.txt file with all necessary debugging information will be automatically downloaded to the computer. The self-test.txt diagnostic file contains diagnostic information and data from the log file and configuration file. The resulting online diagnostics file can be sent to our technical support team for troubleshooting purposes.
NOTE: Important! The settings in the self-test.txt file do not contain passwords, which ensures security when sending it to the support team.
4. In the 'Packet Capture' section, you can enable capturing network traffic passing through the selected interface of your Keenetic. You may find more information in the article 'Network packets capture'.
5. For Keenetic DSL modem routers, on the 'Diagnostics' page, you can diagnose the DSL modem and see the characteristics of the DSL line when the connection is established. This diagnostics will help technical support engineers to identify DSL connection problems. It takes 10 minutes. The result is a file that you should send to Keenetic technical support for analysis.
