This is one of my biggest issues. Customers that want to see what is going on inside their network. I have come to the conclusion, the only way to do this is a managed router solution.
Years ago we found the skydog router, it was a great system. We were ready to standardize on their system, but comcast bought them and they disappeared. Been fiddling with some roll your own stuff using openwrt. Not too bad, not sure how it will scale though. I'm currently testing one system that is suppose to have the inside BW monitoring at the end of the month. Have another system coming in next week that claims to have it all running now. I'll be making my final decision in November. Want to give the cambium guys one more look at the show to see how their stuff has changed in a year. We are looking at doing the managed router at about $7.95-$9.95 per month. Starting to see more and more people interested in a managed router. -- Best regards, Mark mailto:m...@mailmt.com Myakka Technologies, Inc. www.MyakkaTech.com Proud Sponsor of the Myakka City Relay For Life http://www.RelayForLife.org/MyakkaCityFL Please Donate at Please Donate at http://www.myakkatech.com/RFL.html ------ Thursday, September 15, 2016, 9:36:03 PM, you wrote: TOGs> so we got this: TOGs> "Can yotu help us somehow figure out what is using all of TOGs> our data?
