Need a way to monitor wireless bandwidth usage

I have a DSL connection that I am sharing with 3 roommates. When I agreed to share it I made it clear that major downloading had to be kept to a minimum or I'd have to stop sharing it because the speed would slow down to a crawl. Well things were fine for a while but everyones connection speed seems to have slowed way down and I need to know if its 1 specific person downloading to much. Is there a program that will show me how much bandwidth each person on my wireless network is using?

  1. Why not just walk over to their computers and see who is doing what when things slow down? :wink:
  2. 1. I don't want to be nosey (obviously so)

    2. I don't want to accuse anyone needlessly.
  3. Is there no way to do this? I used a small program recently to track my own personal bandwidth and it looks like it only accounts for 1/10th of the total. I'm guessing its just 1 person but if I don't have proof they'll just deny its them since theres 2 other people it could be.

    Theres got to be some program that can track where the bandwidth is being transmitted to...
  4. I aslo need exactly the same thing, have you found any software that can do this yet?
  5. does anyone know how to do this? i'm in the same situation and i have a brother that downloads a lot of crap (porn + movies + music) anyway of knowing when he's downloading so i can yell at him?

    it might be what ur looking for, im still looking for a better one...
