Hi, I have been using Rokario (free edition) Bandwidth monitor to calculate WLAN and LAN traffic from single computers for a year now.

I have just upgraded my desktop PC with a TP-link TL-WN422G (usb high-gain) so I can use the WLAN at the house I am currently living at.

The TP link high gain WLAN adapter is great and has far greater reliability and connectivity than my Acer Aspire One's WLAN internal aerial.

Problem: I can no longer use Rokario (free edition) Bandwidth monitor to monitor traffic as the network adaptor or related adaptor is not listed (I have tried all 15 listed 'adaptors' and tried placing it on auto.

Any ideas for fixes or free alternatives?

Cheers
