hi, i have a bandwidth monitor which i use to monitor all my pc's, but i'm wondering if there's something i can use to check how much the xbox live connection is using? i've read that it uses ~50mb/hr (more if you're hosting, but i'm not sure how much).

maybe something where i can monitor by ip address and give it a static ip? thanks.

No piece of software can do this, unless it's running on the router itself (i.e. maybe you can with Tomato or DDWRT) but if you stuck any piece of Cisco hardware in the middle... way too expensive for home user stuff though.

There is a NZ product that can do this, WebGauge


Even tho it is aimed at flats, It will do exactly what you want (monitor bandwidth)

I use a smoothwall linux box in my household. Used for 2 years, brilliant at tracking every devices usage.

Don't bother touching WebGauge. They send all the data about your bandwidth usage to their servers so they can bill you for the priviledge of knowing how much you use. Completely unnecessary and designed solely to extract money from you.

A smoothwall box would do the job, as well as any of the many higher grade routers that you can pick up for cheap on Trademe.
