Which wireless controller do you have?

You've tagged Cisco, Wireless and Controller, so I'm guessing its something like a 4400?

If you can get to the web-admin page for the controller, under the 'Most Recent Traps' section on the Monitor page you should see a 'View All' link.
This is where you will see the normal logs.

If you need detailed logs you can find them under the Management tab -> Logs -> Message Logs.

Like criagbeck said, it will be at the default gateway address, which you can find by typing ipconfig at the command prompt. You might be able to forward the logs to your email every so often or store on a local computer, just check out your log tab after logging into your cisco controller.

I clicked on Administrator -> Logging -> Download the log file here -> Opened the zip file -> Logs -> Opened index.html.

I was able to see the logs.

Is this correct?

If you can see the logs, you can see the logs. Was there an option for email or anything? If there were, you should be able to schedule a log on the same page.
