Usage report - streaming

Hi,
Is there a way the usage reports can include some useful detailed information like "top ten bandwidth hogs"? This house has apparently leeched 80gb already this month, which is quite astonishing given that according to everyone else in the house the only person who's streamed a movie over the internet is me. And I've only done it once.
According to the usage logs the vast majority of the usage is due to streaming but with 8 devices in the house, pinpointing which one is leeching multimedia like there's no tomorrow and who's doing it at what time is a quite a challenge considering I work away from home during the week and everyone's got an alibi!
I do have a new smart media NAS box and wondered if that has been hammering the connection but if the report can tell me what kind of traffic is maxing it out surely it could also provide some information about which sites?

Do you really want Plusnet to keep a record of the fact someone in your household is downloading porn.

Installing NetWorX on all Windows based devices would be a start.

Re: Usage report - streaming

I could do but I don't even think it's a Windows PC that's doing it - the usage shot up after I got a NAS box and some smart devices. I need to know which device is generating the traffic because it's bottlenecking the LAN and WAN - I couldn't really give a hoot which sites are involved.
