Networking – Wifi usage per computer


Is there a Software (Windows or Linux) to monitor the Wifi of every computer of the home network.

Sometimes my connection is slow, I would like to know which computer make it slow.

I think my o2 Box can t do it…

Thanks 😉

A quick check showed at least half a dozen apps in the Ubuntu repository that will allow you to monitor per-node and per-user bandwidth use. Some of them will allow you to regulate users' bandwidth -- this is called "Traffic Shaping". Check your router, too, because some of them also allow traffic shaping.

I'm sorry I'm not being more precise about it -- much depends on your network setup. Your next step will probably be to read up on which apps you can use, and use the one that best fits your situation.
