Easy to use network monitor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My coworker wants to be able to see what sites his kids are visiting on his wireless network. It doesn't have to be a 24/7 log, just something he can pull up from time to time. I showed him Wireshark but that is a little above his tech level. Anyone know of a free or cheap program that is easy to use?

most home grade routers will log all the information he is wanting and have the capability to email those site names to him. this wont show what they are doing on the sites just the sites they are going to.

He has a 3 or 4 year old Belkin that is one of the basic models, so it doesn't seem to have anything like that.

Setting up OpenDNS would probably be the easiest and least intrusive method to get the domain addresses they are going to. It won't tell you which LAN PC specifically that visited the site though, but you'll get a nice DNS log of what kind of domain names are being looked up.

Why not just whitelist the kids sites?
