    Red face Monitor Network Program

    Is there a program that shows me who is on my home network?

    I have several PC's in my Home/Office and sometimes one is left on for some reason in the upstairs or den and the modem/router is flashing and this drives me a little cucko knowing that my bandwidth is being used up. So if know which one is connected, then I can go to it and log off directly instead of hunting all over the place for it.

    thanks in advance

    It is a brand new program that was just released about a Month ago and hopefully it will improve and get new features as new versions are released.

    Nmap (network mapper) is one of the best network-probing tools.

    Be sure to to read the manual and practice carefully, because Nmap has mighty snooping powers and can get you in trouble.

    NMAP wouldnt be a preferred choice of mine for network monitoring, there many more more suitable tools

    You could of course just login to your router which will show you active connections
