Is there a way to see which ip is using the most bandwith? At times i feel the internet is slow because someone is downloading music or something. I want to know which computer is causing this.

If you suggest a third party (ethereal) or something i might need some help on how to use it.

Thanks

do you use a cisco switch?  If so you can mirror the traffic from the port the pix is plugged into to another monitoring machine.  I use ntop (linux based) and it works great tracking down by IP what the current bandwidth is they are using and what IPs they are talking to and what ports as well; oh and how long their session has been going on.
