"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

You should be able to utilize the built-in Windows event viewer to view login activities:

If you want to have every network log in all protocols, you should install software for this purpose and I suggest WireShark that is free and the most powerful in this area.

You can log in specific hours, custom files, custom ports and even IPs

 I am trying to monitor the duration of my mobile wireless connection. The connection is made to the internet using a wireless USB dongle.
So you should install wireshark to the computer that shares internet. And you can have all internet activity of your mobile.
