Network Monitor

Hope everyone is enjoying the sun and keeping well.

I have a wireless home network with 3 laptops on it 2 running Vista 1 running XP.

One of the laptops belongs to my 12 year old daughter, I want to make sure she is not doing anything illegal downloads ect, And just generally have the ability to turn her conection off via my laptop, I don't know if there is a network monitor type program that might be able to do anything like I need.

Regards T

Tony this comes up every so often and to be honest is very hard to control through software.

You will have the ability to block her connection to the internet within your router settings.

maybe something like Net Nanny maybe better though click here

Skidzy I find it hard to beleive that there is no software solution to this problem, I am currently searching googling for an answer.

If anyone know how I can achieve my target please let me know.

Skidzy thanks for your reply

Does the network router not have a firewall with the option to block sites for specific users, from there you can just cut pepole off if you wish to. Which router are you using? Try typing into your browser it should take you to your routers main page.
