How do I monitor my network?

Hello ^^,

I have a home network which connects 10 PC's using a router, one PC acts as a host and connection to the internet. Unfortunatly the network can be slow sometimes because one or two pc's use up all the upload bandwidth.

I was wondering how I can monitor each individual computer so i can see how much they are upload and downloading, without requiring me to install software on each individual pc. Is there a program that allows me to monitor this?

thank you very much for reading

How do I monitor my network?

did a quick search on google and came up with this: Look@Lan Network Monitor

Looks like its free and does reporting of stats... although not tried it myself but worth a try right?

Thank you very much. This program is good alas it doesn't have what I desire. I can see who is on the network, I can ping them, and see what ports are open on their computer but I can't see the bandwidth consumption.

I think it allows you to monitor other computers on the network and what they have been up to over a period of time, then it shows a report after this time period which you set....

had another look on google and this one, also free, might be more like what you are looking for... Network Probe

It depends what you want and why you want it. Installing winproxy allows you to log everything that each pc does including the pages and downloads. If its to check that people arnt downloading porn or illegal software then this is the way forward as you have a complete record and evidence.

I found it usefull as once people new they were being moitored most of the mp3 etc stopped. I assume its a company show your first move is to issue a internet use policy without that and a signature of each person you may be in trouble if you try to take any action.

Once they have had a clear policy you can disapline them without any problem
