Windows 7: Bandwidth Monitor

Bandwidth Monitor

I currently work from home and one of the systems I use is completely unreliable whenever it has downtime I simply do not get paid.

The reason I have been given to why it happens is that it's due to a dip in my internet connection thus the problem is my end and I won't get paid unless it can be proved that the company are responsible.

I'm looking for a programme so I can monitor any dips is my internet connection that may cause this as I'd need some evidence to provide to them to finally prove that that it is their unreliable systems that are causing my problem and not my Broadband!

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance.

I think a desktop Gadget may be of some help in this case

Thanks for the help so far but all these seem to monitor speeds / packet sent etc I need something to record when specifically when my internet drops connection or my connection is so poor that I'm liable to lose connection to apps.

I don't know if I'm making that much sense or not tbh, I'm no PC guru just know so far what I need to lol

Oh I also need to be able to send the report, so to be able to copy and paste or send it's file to my powers that be.

You can't really moniter the Internet Connection.... You can measure the Speed , Ping and Wireless Signal strength but you cannot measure the Internet Connection to my knowledge

That will be why I have been having so much trouble in finding something

Looks like I'll have to continue taking the hit in my pay packet.

Thank you though everyone and if anyone does find a way please let me know.

Have you looked in your router (if your system has one), they keep logs.
