My son works from home online. He has 3 daughters. Recently his work was held up because his Broadband allocation had run out. He discovered that 2 of the girls had been watching 80GB of videos. I am looking for software that will monitor the data traffic going through the wireless router showing the address of each computer. The only program I can find only monitors the computer which it is installed in. An alternative would be software that disabled the connection once a preset limit was reached.

Any help would be appreciated.

Get a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND and pop Gargoyle on it. You can set data caps real easy, that expire daily, weekly or monthly for them, per-PC.

Software on a PC is too easily disabled.

Get your daughters to pay for the difference for the next plan up from your ISP

Cheaper than buying a new router ,if they don't pay invoke the sex and travel clause
