ISP has recently announced that they are going to start charging $1 for every GB that their customers go over their monthly limit. i have a 100GB/mo package and i figure that's sufficient for my habits which consist of approx 40GB of torrents, a bit of skyping, bit of browsing, etc. my ISP makes usage graphs available online, when i checked earlier last month to confirm i'm staying under my 100GB limit the graphs said over the past 12 months the highest i topped was 90GB, usually in the 70's. pretty much what i expected. but when i check their usage graphs again recently it says i've been using over 400GB for the past 3 months straight (as far back as the new graphs go). i call BS and find it very suspicious that my internet usage magically quadruples the same time my ISP wants to start charging for overusage, especially retro-active.
anyhoo, i want to somehow monitor my internet traffic usage independently but i'm not sure the best way to go about it.my home network is the typical modem -> router -> LAN.my router is a new netgear wndr3700, it has a traffic meter built in, but considering it's only forms of notification is cutting the internet off altogether or changing a green blinking LED to and orange blinking LED when the defined limit is reached, it's kinda useless. i just got it a couple months ago too, so buying a new router with better traffic monitoring isn't an option.i could put a net meter on each and every computer i have, then sum up their usage stats, but that would be a pain in the ass and wouldn't take my PS3 or WDTV media player into account, as little as they're used online.my prefered solution is to use an old laptop i hardly touch anymore and set it up as a gateway and share the internet connection or make it a proxy server. that way i could set up a net meter on just the one NIC on that to track my internet usage. modem -> laptop -> router -> LAN. the problem i have hear is forwarding ports from one NIC to the other so they can then get ditributed by the router, never tried this before, not sure how to go about it. right now it has XP home, but i can put 7 on it if that's better to work with.
I just got optical fiber installed in my place which gives me great download speeds. Now my ISP has a monthly download limit of 120GB, after that I gotta pay overages.Now my setup is like this: Fiber modem (1 port) -> Linksys E3000 router (4 ports + wifi).All my gear is hooked up to the Linksys router (xbox, ps3, media center, office pc & 2 laptops).I would like to keep track of the total "internet" bandwidth use of all devices, but exclude the normal network traffic, as that of course I don't pay for.Is there something that I can install on the Linksys router that can keep track of that kinda of information? router (4 ports + wifi).
I am supporting a small call center of all Win7 machines. There is no server in house as everything is web based. Anyway, we want to find the bandwidth hogs and programs that I am used to using require servers for monitoring web traffic.
Are there any devices or software that is not a fortune that can give details on bandwidth usage?
I keep getting warning on bandwidth usage , I'm using a dir-615 routers xp on all machines . The one pc that i use to d/l with I have the torrent monitor on and shows little traffic. Ive heard of a few pieces of s/w but these require software to be installed on all boxes Id like to be able to monitor from one box if possible ??
is there a way to get traffic and client access/associations data with WCS for each AP of a centrally managed WLAN?I manage a campus WLAN with a 4402WLC (software version 126.96.36.199) and a WCS version 188.8.131.52 .WCS provides me detailed information on a client basis: I'm able to know the association history of each client currently connected, both which AP the client has connected to, and how much traffic the client has generated/ received for each connection.I hadn't find a way to get the same information on an AP basis. Namely, which clients have been connected, and how much traffic has been transmitted per time slot. I suppose this is just a matter of making a different query to the WCS database, since the data are the same used for providing the information on the client association and traffic history. Though, I haven't find a way on WCS to get this information.
I'd really like to be able to monitor DSL traffic on my X2000. SNMP is the logical way to do this; Looking at the source to the Management screen, it looks tantalizingly close, but the SNMP bits are commented out in the HTML.
i want to monitor interface traffic in/out by eem and the if the values is overer than some value i will change the policy. for example my router is 2821 is have 2 fastEthernet port , i want to monitor the traffic on fasE1/0 if traffic over than 80Mbps i will change some configuration ( example: change next-hop on static route) for via traffic to interface fasE1/1 for reduce the traffic on interface fasE1/0?
I have a Belkin G router F5D7230-4 (firmware version 8.01.07) and am trying to view stats on what is using our connection.We have a very low capacity, rural wireless broadband that our ISP tells us is maxed out all the time, even when we don't appear to be using any devices, so I'd like to view the traffic on our DHCP client list to see which device is using an excessive amount of bandwith and put a limit on its access.I don't see a statistics tab on the setup page, is there another place to look or does Belkin have an external program to do this?
I have a two ASA 5520's and I want to be able to see or monitor the traffic between each tunnel. I am using external addresses but for the sake of this question I will use the following: 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 . How can I montior the traffic?
I am trying to find a tool that will monitor the web traffic for one specific user. If it is capable of bundling it into a report that would also be a benefit. I have searched, but not come up with much aside from broad network monitoring tools. All that is really needed is to capture all the activity from http traffic for this one specific user/PC (since she uses the same PC all the time). We have a Sonicwall NSA 2400 as our internet filter, but I was not able to locate anything on there for specific user reporting.
I have an RV042 router and I'm looking to monitor the total upstream and downstream traffic from within the router.
I know there is tons of software that I can put on a network computer to monitor traffic, but is there any software that I can put on the router itself that will monitor the traffic from within the router?
I was previously using SDM for our Cisco 2811, and this past week installed CISCO Configuration Professional so I could have access to a bandwidth/traffic monitor.
I have successfully started the monitoring service and monitored traffic from within CCP, but it appears that if I turn off the computer I am using to monitor the traffic, it stops collecting data until I start CCP and the monitor up again.
Is there a way (maybe with IOS console commands) that I can have the monitor always running, so I can pull up, say, a week's worth of info at any time? Leaving the computer on all the time is not an option, and currently I have only a few days of data, then a big empty chunk, and then what I have collected since I started it back up today.
I have an RV042 router and I'm looking to monitor the total upstream and downstream traffic from within the router. I know there is tons of software that I can put on a netowrk computer to monitor traffic, but is there any software that I can put on the router itself that will monitor the traffic from within the router?
I have a switch 4948, with version 12.2.31.sga4 ( I dont found bug about monitor session) and we try to made port mirroring with a monitor session from a VLAN and port belong at this VLAN have traffic input and output, but in the destination port, I always see it output traffic..
Global command Red-127#sh run | in moni monitor session 1 source vlan 1127
We have a Cisco ASA 5520 and im looking for a way to monitor largest outgoing and incoming traffic per ip in real time so to know which of my internal computers are using the most of our Internet Line. Is there a way to this through ADSM ? We use version 6.3.
i would like to monitor traffic between multiple source ports to multiple destination ports on a nexus 7k. i lknow when you set up monitor session is between source and destination (laptop or traffic analyser) but is there a way i can set up between source and multiple destination ports and capture that traffic ?
I brought a friend's computer home, thinking I could solve her problem but I'm at my wit's end. I cannot open Internet Explorer and Internet Options does not open from Control Panel. I followed other suggestions I found on your forum and on the net but nothing works. I cannot access the internet in any way (on that computer) and therefore cannot even supply you with a HiJack file. I tried several restore points and the only malware pgm on that computer is MalmareBytes (which found nothing). I cannot even run a anti-virus scan because that is no longer running - which is the reason I brougth her computer to my house in the first place. After several attempts of trying to open IE some times it stays open for a few seconds but most times it just flashes, then closes.
Whenever I click on "Tools," then "Internet Options" in Internet Explorer I get the following message: "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your systems administrator
Currently i have my wired router connected to my modem, with three desktops connected to it. I just purchased a laptop, and would like to be able to get internet on it, my question is what are my options to get internet on my laptop [wireless] yet still keep the wired connections on the desktops as is? And if thats not an option what would be the easiest solution?My laptop has a built in built-in LAN (802.11n), built-in 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet LAN with RJ-45 connector for quick and easy wired Web connection.
In the company I work for, employees' internet traffic is monitored, and if you download too much, you get a warning, and later there might be more serious consequences. But they don't tell how many kilobytes are too much, and they also don't tell, how much of your "kilobyte budget" you have spent already. So I want to be able to monitor my own internet activity. However, all the programs I found so far watch the whole traffic going through the network card, which, beside the internet usage, includes LAN and mail server communication, which don't count. So, I'm looking for a free portable program that can monitor specifically my browser's internet usage, i.e. the number of kilobytes sent and received by the browser application. It is imperative that the program should be portable, or at least installable without administrator privileges, because I don't have that.
I have 4 laptops (WiFi), 2 desktops (LAN), xbox (LAN), and dish receiver (LAN) that are all connected to the internet using the method between the brackets. Recently i am running out of bandwidth, and what i am looking for is a freeware that i can install in one of the computers that could tell me which IP or MAC address used how much internet.I have read several articles: some articles point me to softwares which only monitor the computer that they are installed. Other posts argued that such thing can only be done through the main router. I know my router doesn't have such feature. I use SMC router.
I am trying to figure out how I can see what my monthly total bandwidth usage is. I have been trying to find a way to monitor my internet usage so I can make an informed decision on ISPs. one has a cap but allows ESPN3, the other is the opposite on both accounts. everything I have been finding look like good products however they all look like they are for an individual device. I have about ten devices and not all would have the ability to have these programs on them. I have and old xp machine that really is only good as a paper weight, If I had to I could make it a proxy but before I do that and create a major bottleneck I wanted to see if there were any other options
I would like a free tool that would moniter the internet usage of our network. it has about 20 computers and would like the following features: be able to show the usage of each computer the type of usage, ie, browsing, downloading, streaming a total usage Is there such a free program? would Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4 be able to do the trick if i learnt how to use it?
I recently received an email from my internet provider showing illegal movie downloads through my modem. I have a wireless router hooked up (with password security) for my roommates to use and would like to monitor their internet activities to know who is downloading these movies.
