Free Network Monitoring Software?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Last time I asked about networking I was living with a friend who has crappy internet.. and I then moved to a place that still has crappy internet lol. It's that crappy clear wireless. I was wondering if there is any software that would monitor the network and let me limit the bandwidth to a certain computer since it doesn't let me do that in the clear settings.

You're going to want to put a device in front of the modem that will do "traffic shaping."

pfSense is a free and open-source routing/firewall/monitoring platform that will run on most any device (get an old computer and add a second NIC). It has a very, very healthy selection of features, and more often than not, I recommend it to my customers for use in their business.
