Go to the router and see what is connected, then you can check those devices and see what they are doing. If turning off wireless makes it go faster, sounds like you have some wireless device doing downloads.

See if the router has a log feature, if not, you need to setup a proxy server to route the internet traffic though, you can't monitor the traffic though the router with just a computer attached to it unless the router has that option.

Check out this software, may help http://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/

It looks like that program is only for a single computer, not for monitoring the network. You need to have a central pint of that, from your Router. If it does not have good log capability, you would need to upgrade to a corporate router.
