Monitoring bandwidth usage

Specs: Windows Vista and XP
Hi, just wondering, when I check my download usage in my ISP's website customer section, it shows the download usage for both computers that are used here at home together. Was wondering if there is any possible way to monitor how much bandwidth another user is using sepratly to mine. Cheers.

I suspect you have both PC's at home connecting to the internet through a SOHO router which in turn is connected to your ISP. If this is the case then there's really no way for your ISP to break it down to individual PC's.

You might be able to monitor bandwidth usage on your side of the external connection using 3'd party monitoring software. You might have to install it on both PC's though in order to get an accurate accounting of each PC's usage.

Conversely, you could install it on one, get the total from the ISP's website and then subtract one PC's usage from the total leaving you the amount of usage of the second PC.
