Hello,

This is a small home network with 6 desktops and 3 laptops. Id like to keep an eye on bandwidth each PC is using, espeically games. It's family use so I simply dont want a commercial software, freeware are appreciated. I know I can google, but that takes time to try one by one. I just want you guys tell me your experiences. So,whats the best software for monitoring network traffic?

Thanks in advance.
