Hello All,
I just set up a wired network in my home.
both computers are running windows 7 ultimate.
My question is how do you monitor the amount of
bandwidth use of both computers? And how do you set this up?

Thanks for any help

On your routers home page via typing in the IP address that you use to set it up.

Then you will need to install a custom router firmware like DD-WRT or OpenWRT.

You could also check to see if your ISP can provide you with a bandwidth monitor as well.
