    Is there some sort of software available to install on ones system to monitor all devices on your network and compile a monthly bandwidth usage log file so I could be ready to have some check's and balance's in place when charging one for their bandwidth usage is going to be the norm for anyone with Cable service and probably everything else Satellite, etc.? I have Time Warner and their Ultimate Internet package which is great with the up load speed of 5 mbps and downloads at 50mbps it's just that since they have their way of giving you a report each month of ones usage I would like to be able to compare my self with my own results . I have come across several program's you can Install on each and everything you own as far as computers but now way to monitor TV's and printer's , etc.
    I'm using Motorola Surf Board SBG6580 and they have nothing on their web site period to use with this modem/router. I would be very grateful of any suggestions on this issue I have .

    No problem. The Network Engineer/Network Admin is trying to convince the Director of IT to buy it (close to $7,000).

    Not sure how to set it up, but best of luck!

    I would like to say it is installed on my machine and was not all that problematic, there is a wizard of some sort at the beginning of the install if ones chooses to use it and looks as though the only devices a person could possibly track would be a device with an ip address. So basically that is all I need once I set up to configure my modem/router's ip and start creating daily or monthly log's which ever option I have from within the software to track up load and down load usage in what ever format it has to offer which is going to require some reading on my part, I hope I have the option to track in Mb or Gb's . Later, and will try to keep thing's up dated here as far as my result's.
