    Default suggest software for router bandwidth monitor

    so i bought a tplink router a few days back.... i want a software preferably like du meter
    where it will show the upload & download speed of all the devices connected under my wifi
    in real time (ie: live) as a graph

    example: du meter live graph:




    not looking to spy/sniff packets so dont suggest something like wireshark
    also tired of going to routers web interface...besides it doesnt have much options


    thnx in advance

    There is no software that can do what you are asking. The closest you'll get is PRTG. But it actually uses packet sniffing to show the bandwidth and I'm not sure how much accurate it would be without an SNMP or Netflow supported router.

    And about router web interface, the TP-Link's statistics option under system tools can give you a rough estimate. It shows the number of packet transferred, but not the actual bandwidth in bits/kbits. Also you can flash your router with open source custom firmwares, like tomato or dd-wrt. I think Tomato has a good option for showing bandwidth usage graphs.

    it seems tomato is used widely with linksys etc..... i guess i have to do some research before flashing my router....unless i want to brick it....but tomato has real time bandwidth monitor that i am looking for

    tried PRTG....couldnt use it properly (didnt know where to start) may be i will give it another go later
