Monitor bandwidth usage over network for each individual computer


Go to solution Solved by PabUK,

Question

Is there anyway to monitor bandwidth usage over a network from each individual computer with a program installed on just my pc ?
I know I could use the router but I don't see the option on my ASUS RT-N66U router.

There's a fork of the official firmware that can do this. It's called Asuswrt-Merlin. I use it on my RT-N66U and it does just what you ask.

Here's a screenshot:

Looks like this router allows you to select per device. I would suggest upgrading it to the latest firmware.

Will this damage the router or make it now work at all anymore?

PabUK is it easy to update to Asuswrt-Merlin without messing up the router or killing it?

 

Thanks.

Yes, when I did it all my settings were retained. You just install it through the WebUI like a normal update. Just be sure to backup your settings to a file first, then in the unlikely event of something going horribly wrong you can always return to the stock firmware if necessary (there's a tool to do so on the Asus website).

Just asking do you have a link to the tool on Asus website so if something goes wrong I have it?

It's the one that mentions "Firmware Restoration". Honestly though, you are really unlikely to need it. It should be enough to know it exists (it's also on the CD that came with the router if you still have it).

I don't see it :( Didn't keep the cd or box.

Really? It's called "ASUS RT-N66U B1 Utility version 4.2.3.9" and it's the last one in the Utility section.

Yes really. Maybe I am a blind. Will try again. Nope couldn't find it :(

 

Did you select Windows 8 64 bit ?
