    "Excellent Program for monitoring Bandwidth"

    February 15, 2011  |   By snafu169

    Pros

    FREE FREE FREE, there is no sucker "Trial", it is totally Freeware, and no ads.

    - Monitor all users on Network ( except mobile devices...phones Tablets etc)
    - Export to excel
    - Alerts you can set for daily usage

    Cons

    NONE - Developers are quick to respond in forum and open to suggestions

    Summary

    I have searched high and low for a program that would tell me how much bandwidth the PC's on my network use, this is the only one I found that will report back to my PC, I can see all users and the bandwidth they use... Note check settings/advanced and Syncronize... make sure you allow through Firewall... it is the simplest program but tells you exactly what you need and also has Alerts which you ccan set to tell you when total bandwidth ( you set) has been reached.

    a must have for anyone who wants to keep track of how much internet you kids are using, you can set a password also.... not invasive, just tells you how much is being used, so you can educate them on controlling their ussage.

    the latest download 5.1.7 was buggy, but I contacted the programmers through their forum and they fixed it write away ( had wrong build on link)... all good now ( Feb 14/11)

    I have also searched high and low for the same thing. But I want to know how much bandwidth EVERY DEVICE on my network is using (not just windows PCs which I guess is what you did). It will only do as you describe if your network is made up only of windows machines that are each running their own installed copy of networx. Most networks nowadays have all kinds of android devices, ipads, iphones, etc etc connected to them in which case this will not help you determine who the bandwidth hog is. Scroll to the bottom of this page from the makers of networx where they make the same disclaimer: https://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/manual/?lang=English
    I quote: "NetWorx can only monitor traffic on the computer where it is installed." It's a great piece of software for keeping tabs on your personal bandwidth usage. But not really for monitoring usage across a network (unless the whole network is windows computers).
