I would download the free trial here And then if you need to identify the traffic you should use wireshark and mirror the port on thee router...  There is a lot of how tos for wireshark around the web.

I use MRTG or Cacti to track bandwidth, cpu and memory utilization.  Both tools are free and run on *nix or Windows.

If the 877 supports netflow, you can send flow data to a server using an ntop/cflowd type of tool to determine the types of traffic that pass through the network.
