I have ip flow top talkers configured on the router. Is there a way I can tell at least the computer name of the user that is using the IP address? Is there a way I can trace that while being on the router?

Go to a computer connected to the network and from Command prompt run nslookup <IP address> and it should return the computer name associated with that IP address.

I couldn't do the above 2 since I am not on their subnet. It's a router at another location. thanks

one last question for you, is there a way I can bump an IP off the network? user is using an IP and it's over utilizing the connection.

You can block the MAC address, but this would need to be done from the router on that network.

How to do it depends on the router, but look for port security or MAC filtering option. From there, you can create a rule to not allow traffic to the specified MAC address.
