Hello to all!!

I have one question which gives me a lot of trouble these days so I would like to share it with you :thumbsup:

There is a network which I must look for and it has a router (Zyxel P-660HW-D3) and 30 computers that are going on Internet over it.
From time to time I have problem with spyware/trojan or similar problem which I can detect over ISP bandwidth listing.
My question is; can I find some software which will be able to detect computers in network and "see" how much of bandwidth they are using (over IP, computer name or whatever...). Router doesn't have that kind of option so I must improvise. Offcourse my boss is not willing to pay for some pro solution so I must find some "lite" solution.

Any help will be great!!

Wireshark will show all connections, packet details, protocols, everything. Don't know about loads.

Do those 30 computers have desktop firewalls, antispyware, antivirus installed, updated, and running all the time and users are prevented from fiddling with the settings, and is IE setup tightly and also prevented from being changed by users? If the answer to any of this is 'no', the boss will pay more in the long run for data lost or stolen and for the need to fix broken computers all the time.

Well, most of answers to your questions are yes...
Wireshark gives me a network traffic just for a local computer (or I am wrong?), what I need is to see traffic for all computers in workgroup...
