    Depending on where you put the program, Ethereal analyzes network traffic.

    Also a proxy server should kill most of the problems.

    Ethereal/Wireshark are overkill if you're just wanting to see bandwidth.

    TrafficShaper or Ntop will give you flow based accounting. If you're simply interested in Internet traffic run a passive tap/SPAN port between the inside interface of your firewall and your LAN.
