Lan Monitor

  User-9A919F67-6ADE-4BFB-8B35A0F56CB2F7D6 18:37 10 Apr 2009

I have a home network with a Sky Netgear router, which has 4 PC's connected to it either via ethernet or wireless.

I would like to monitor what traffic is going between the PC's and the router / internet, preferable in a graphical way.

I'm not interested in snooping on what each computer is doing. I just want to see what traffic they are generating and at what times.

Does anybody know of a free tool that will do this reliably. I want to install it on just 1 PC and leave it running in the background, reporting back on what the whole network is doing.

Thanks in advance

Try The Dude:

"The Dude network monitor is a new application by MikroTik which can dramatically improve the way you manage your network environment. It will automatically scan all devices within specified subnets, draw and layout a map of your networks, monitor services of your devices and alert you in case some service has problems."
