how do i save linksys router logs?

I have a linksys befrs41 v3 router. when i access my router settings, i see there is a system and access logs. whenever the router is turned off however, it forgets all these logs. is there anyway i can save them so that i can view these at a later time?

Yea, that is a problem with these routers, as I do not find in my version a way to do this.  But, I did find this Log Viewer for Linksys:

Linksys Support:
Log Viewer supports capturing, viewing and analyzing SNMP trap messages send by Linksys BEFSR11, BEFW11S4, BEFSR41, BEFSX41, BEFSR81, BEFVP41, WAG54G and similar Linksys routers/firewalls. The Log Viewer SNMP Logging Client or Log Viewer SNMP Logging Service creates log files in a format suitable for use with Log Viewer. The use of this feature does not require Norton Internet Security, Norton Personal Firewall or AtGuard to be installed.

Direct download from Linksys:

You could certainly either take screenshots of the logs, or just copy them into notepad using the paste function...  My linksys version does not have the option of saving the logs to a file, but I can copy and paste them if I wish..
