Wireless traffic monitor

by mathewshel / November 19, 2013 3:41 PM PST

I want to monitor the wireless internet traffic at our office. Could someone recommend any solution that will allow me to generate reports on the traffic, that would include the bandwidth used, source and destination IP's etc.

Keep in mind this is a frequently asked question. There are no cheap or easy solutions. There are cheap. There are easy but not both.

Why not try a google search to find the prior discussions?

I apologized in my own way that I shortchanged you. Then I saw I had shorted you far too much and added the search that finds the prior discussions.

Sorry about that but for now, I've yet to find cheap and easy.

Tamosoft comes closer but a new networker might drown in the information.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
