Hi @ShihabOmar ,

You can follow below two options to forward router data to Splunk.

1) Router - > syslog(with the help of splunk agent) -> Splunk indexers

2) Router  -> Heavy forwarder(Enable the port for listening) ->Splunk indexer.

Appreciate your help.

Is there any documentation about  how to get the syslog from  router and how to send it to splunk?

Path Finder

This really depends on your router manufacturer.  You could easily google something like: Linksys LRT224 syslog configuration  ( so pointing your router to your syslog server (Or splunk directly if it is the only syslog device and you enabled the port on your splunk server) should get you what you need.
