Is there a way to track how much bandwidth individual devices are using on my home network? I'm trying to see if it's worthwhile to upgrade my internet speed.
I currently get 15/1 MB for $54 a month (we own the modem).
We can have connected to the network, but not always using the network, the following devices:
1 iPod touch
2 Nintendo 3DSes
1 iPad 2
2 Desktop PCs - one is my gaming PC, the other is the kids XP game box
1 Laptop - my wife streams all kinds of videos on this old beast lol
1 Nintendo Wii - we use Netflix/Amazon video on there quite a bit, with the very occasional online game of Mario Kart.
We haven't had many issues with that amount of bandwidth, but I know Time Warner throttles when I download anything large (torrenting or otherwise, like Origin/Steam games). I get randomly disconnected from BF3, and video streams bog down, and so on.
Even if these devices are all idle, many of them connect for updates and notifications.
