Windows 7: Network Monitor

Network Monitor

Hi

anyone have any suggestions for a network monitor.

I tried Surveilstar Activity Monitor, because of it's features, and it's free.

It doesn't play well with the network setup.

Modem>Router>Network Switch>PC's

Something similar in features, along with simplicity.

It's a small office, and there is no IT person working in the office on a regular basis, just for maintenance.

The office manager will be monitoring the the network.

thx! in advance.

Hiyya and welcome terraerm if you are just after a up / download speed monitor mate I use the Florian Gilles NetSpeedMonitor app. It will show you the up/down speeds as it happens.

Oh I meant to say it sits on the taskbar

hi Wireshark, would be too complicated for a non it person to interpret. NetSpeedMonitor only works per PC. This is the link for SurveilStar, and what it does. SurveilStar Activity Monitor - Free Web Activity Monitor, Free email recording, Free employee monitoring Thx

Yeah sorry mate I thought you needed just a download "counter" and perhaps could have just installed it through your network

Wireshark is what everyone uses for network monitoring, I'm not sure if a more simple version of this exists or not but this is what everyone uses.
