Let me start by saying I am in way over my head with all the computers & gadgets that I own & am getting tired of it all.  My ISP is Xplornet Satellite internet. I have the following devices in my home & would like to get rid of some. Currently connecting to my Linksys WRT1900AC router are:
 
Windows 7 Desktop
Windows 7 laptop
Windows 7 laptop
Lexmark printer
MYbook live Hard drive
PS3
2- Ipads
Iphone 6
Samsung Galaxy 5s
Macbook Air
 
I am wanting to keep track of our data usage as I am getting hosed by our ISP each month & need a program that would encompass all these devices so I can see the amount of data that is being consumed by each device for a specific period of time & by what programs. Of course all of the devices are not all used simultaneously.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to start?
 
Thank you for your time.

I noticed the gauntlet ran from free to fee. [i googled: bandwidth monitoring software -- was looking for a cetain vendor, didn't find yet]

It Depends where you are. I.m in the UK and run BT Infinity (Fibre Optic) broadband, which gives me no download and upload limits. Download speed is typically 36 MB/Sec.

It supports 2 Win 7 desktops, 1 Ubuntu desktop, 5 laptops  and a Brother printer.

 

With this ISP package no data usage monitoring is needed.

 

Wherever you are Fibre Optic is the way to go.

I am also wondering if there is a program that can be used to monitor the bandwidth usage on the router rather than individual devices.  As I have both windows & apple devices, I am not sure this is possible??

It seems the Linksys router has network map feature already to check connected devices and bandwith usage. http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/review/linksys/wrt1900ac/559322/
