good & "reasonably priced" don't go together for this type of software.

What is reasonably priced for you?  

I would say Solar Winds Orion - http://solarwinds.net/Orion/Index.htm.  Quote:  "Priced from  $2,370 to $14,470 depending on the size of your network... Orion will monitor your entire network via the web."

That's very "reasonably priced" when you compare it to HP Openview NNM ...

We are a 30 user non profit organization, I am a web page developer that was thrown into a network administration job.
2,000 to 5,000 would be a good estimate of what I'd be willing to pay. We are just having problems that the event viewer is not pointing me too.

What do you want to monitor?  Servers mostly?  Network gear mostly?  What kind of network gear do you have?  If you want to monitor with an app like Orion, you're going to need gear that supports SNMP.

If all the answers to these questions are Network Gear, does support SNMP, monitor some servers a plus but not main focus, then I would highly recommend Orion.  It's relatively easy to configure and reliable.

We Have a T1 line going into a cisco 1700 router_---->Linksys 5-port workgroup hub----watchguard soho6tc-----2 dell switches---legacy Hub------our network. I'm having internet connections problems which I thought was solved when we replaced the soho and now 1 week later the same problem are starting again.

Well, Orion could definitely monitor the Cisco router - and has very good Cisco interoperability.  I really doubt it can watch the Linkss or Watchguard since they probably don't run SNMP.  Dont' know aobut the dell switches or your legacy hub.

See if this works for you:  http://npmv7.solarwinds.net/NetPerfMon/View.asp?View=NodeDetails&NetObject=N:168

If not, go to the Orion page and hit the live demo button.

However, it sounds like you need a consultant to come in and help fix your immediate problem before you spend some time and $$$ putting in a monitoring solution.
