Bandwidth Monitor/Sniffer
Does anyone know of any tools I can download that will monitor the bandwidth usage on our internet connection at home?

We have a linksys router that the server and some other PC's connect too to get internet access. I'm experiencing random bouts of lag and I think it's being caused by bandwidth contention but I can't be sure without being able to monitor the usage through the router. Unfortunately the router logs are about as useful as a handbrake on a canoo.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ps. Has everyone got their Xmas shopping done yet?
I use a program called Bandwidth monitor Pro, I forget where I got it but I am sure that a quick Google search would find it

Linux users might want to take a look at a very competent utility called nload[1]. I've been using it to monitor a 16 player public test server recently and it has performed very well.

Nload is a console based app, and presents a realtime textual view of up and downstream data usage across one or more interfaces. It does present a basic graphical view of bandwidth usage in the form of a scatter-type graph, although even at maximum capacity (7-800kbps for one css port) in either direction the graph barely shows any movement (I think this was designed to monitor slightly higher bandwidth usage applications).



There is also a free bit of software for windows on called netstat live

I would recomend having a look
