Hello everyone!
I manage a Windows XP SP3 network of 10 computers that share one large DSL connection.
I have the need to monitor bandwidth speed (not used amount of traffic) usage by other computers on network.
I have to mention that there is no way for me to install some client type application on other computers, all i have is regular LAN access to them.
Is there a way to accomplish that? Any genius soft ideas or advices? Cause I've been looking around for some time, and did not see it possible.
Thanks a lot in advance.

You want to test the download speed of computers remotely? I do not think its possible. Even if it were, you being connected to them would throw it off I believe.

If you don't mind me asking, why you want to do this?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

I think that he wants to cap the speeds of his other computers so that they each get fair amount of bandwidth...

Something like this is most easily done with a piece of hardware. Most of the "more expensive" routers have bandwidth "shaping" built into them and will allow you to "cap" the amount of useable bandwidth each user is permitted.

You may also want to look at a free software that you can use to "load" a router that also has bandwidth "shaping" built into it.

One would be Endian Firewall and the other would be ClarkConnect.

Hope this helps,
