Windows 7: Can i monitor and control multiple router connected devices data???

Can i monitor and control multiple router connected devices data???

I have tried to research this and am not finding the information I need to answer the above question so hope a networking expert can help.

I recently for the first time went over my monthly data cap for broadband and looking it to it a bit more it looks like a lot of the programs my kids are using are hogging the bandwidth. I don't really want to pay for more bandwidth (as I already pay way above average as I live in a small rural village) but I don't want to restrict too much what my kids are doing.

The solution to me seems to be to see if I can monitor and if possible control to some extent the data on each of the IP connected to the router if that is at all possible.

I have looked at my router settings and unfortunately they do not permit anything more than traffic monitoring and there are no custom firmwares to allows additional features of any use.

Is there any software that I could use to do this?

Can anybody help at all with any advice about whether this can be done?

It is almost impossible to restrict the total usage of bandwidth. To my knowledge there are no setting for that in normal routers/gateways.
