In the last few weeks, Ive noticed excessive traffic on my network of around 30 computers. The switches' activity lights all seem to blink all the time. Is there a way to figure out where that traffic is coming from ?

Thanks in advance!

Perhaps you have one or more infected PC's in your network. Try using wireshark to analyze the network flow. See if there are any PC's trying to reach out of your network and go from there. The other suggestion I have is to issue command: netstat -ano in each PC to check any incoming or outgoing network connection that seems suspicious to you.

Good Luck!

Thanks! Where would I install Wireshark? On any PC or ALL of them?
