Not entirely sure if this is the right place, but oh well. 

My home uses a mixture of wired and wireless devices: my pc, a wireless laptop, two tablets and two lg phones. 

We have an Arris SBG6580 modem, which my pc is directly connected to, with cable internet service.  

Over the last several weeks, one of the tablet users has been extremely secretive about their online activity, ie exiting the window or placing the device facedown when anyone approaches, carrying the device with them CONSTANTLY, etc. 

Our net usage has also gone up considerably in that time. 

Is there any way that I can log/monitor and view exactly what traffic is going in or out through our wireless? 

I've tried searching the make and model, but all results I found involved routers, which we do not have. 

I'm running Windows XP SP3, 

Any help would be appreciated.

Your modem is really a router.

It does have logging and it has parental controls.  Might check into those starting with the logging so you can see where this person is going.
