Windows 7: Looking for internet monitoring tool

Looking for internet monitoring tool

I have 6 computers all running Windows 7 Pro in a peer-to-peer network. I do not have a server.
I searched using the works "internet monitor" but did not find any applicable posts.


My internet connection is provided by a big phone company. Sometimes it runs poorly. I'd like to find some sort of software which could monitor my internet connection and, when it is not running properly, tell me in some way so I can take action.



Right now the only thing I can do is to connect a laptop directly to my internet router and have it run ping all the time. Then I have to open a remote desktop connection to the laptop so I can view how well it is running ping. There must be a better way.


What simple and inexpensive software is available to monitor my internet connection so I don't have to connect a laptop to my router and keep typing "ping www.yahoo.com" all the time?

You're better off getting a new ISP if you can. If this is DSL you probably have ingress in the line. Smokeping from broadbandreports.com can help with that.


There is a program I saw on snapfiles, but the have a hardware problem right now so I can't post its link.

Ping tells you nothing as it's dos attack a lot of sites will drop it to protect itself. Tracert gives a better guide as it shows speed through each hop and will often show a slow router down the line. You first need to check the local network that know one is streaming 4k video or playing a game all of which would take the bandwidth

Okay, they are back online. Take your pick. Search for freeware and shareware downloads at SnapFiles.com
