Can you login to your router to see what's being used?

Lot's of bandwidth monitors listed here (haven't used any of them myself):

Yes i can log onto my router to see if he is on, problem is it is always connected and i dont know if he is downloading something or not. I tried a couple programs from what i found with google but they only tell me what my computer is doing and thats it.

In order to tell what's going on, you'll have to read the logs from your router. If your router supports syslog - here's a nice free tool that I used to keep track of my network: http://sonic.net/wallwatcher/
