Monitor downloads across network (LAN)

zillah asked 2 years ago

Hi

We have got a small office with 3 laptops (XP SP3) wirelessly connected to a router (Netgear FVS318V3 ) and 4 desktops (XP SP3) connected wired to the router (Netgear FVS318V3).

Is there a program I can install on one of the desktop (remember we have 4 desktops) and can monitor how much data each PC is downloading?

I don't really need to see what is being downloaded but how much data is being downloaded ?

Thanks

Yes.

You're looking for a network sniffer. Seems like I've used this one before http://www.wireshark.org/

Keep in mind that some sniffers require their own NIC card to monitor data on the network.
