Hello, can anyone recommend (hopefully a free) tool/software that I can use to monitor my bandwidth usage at home... This includes my home pc, iphone, and tablets.
my router does not have a build in tracker, neither does my ISP.
thank you

FreeMeter Bandwidth Monitor
NetWorx

In these situations a google search for something like 'bandwidth tracker' can be very helpful, or 'best bandwidth trackers' as lots of editorial sites will have reviews and recommendations with feature comparisons. download.com is also nice too.

This will be tough.  In order to monitor all those devices you need either a router that supports SNMP or a unique program on each device that monitors and records/saves each devices utilization,

So unless your router supports SNMP you are stuck getting a bandwidth monitor for each of those devices. You would need to search for applications that do this for each device you have and its OS.
