Any recommendations on some good network monitoring software? Doesn't have to be free, but what are some good ones out there, what works well with the most amount of features and possibilities, bandwidth monitor, remote desktop, etc etc.

thanks

Cisco Network Magic has some good features. It can track who is connected to your internet (wirless/cabled), do sharing, control internet access, take desktop screenshot, view computer usage (internet, pages visited etc) (most require it to be installed on all computers).

Another one my brother send me is Bandwidth monitor. Pretty nice for seeing how much you are using if you have a limit.

Wireshark, free, very powerful and good at protocol analyzing, also can monitor networks.
Colasoft Capsa, a graphic and intuitive network monitor, also very easy-to-use.
Choose one you prefer.
