    Default software for monitoring what websites a computer on network is using

    I give my elderly next door neighbour access to my wife. Trust her completely but there are others in her house and I want to be able to see what sites they are on and what they are downloading etc from my laptop

    Any free software out there?

    If there are others in the house, then I'd let them sort out their own wifi mate. You might trust her, but it's not worth the risk when others are involved imo.

    Thanks to burner1

    If what they are viewing is fine then I have no problem with it, if not I'll change the password

    Connect to their router using an injection capable wifi device, run a live version of Backtrack (free download) and on that you could use Dsniff, Driftnet, Urlsnarf, Ettercap etc. for taking a peek.

    Connect it to your router - have a look at ddwrt, might have some logging options?

    i think the only quick solutions require you installing the app on the machine thats using the internet and not on your router side
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    You could sign up for a free personal account on opendns, I think the parental controls give you 2 weeks basic website reporting you can set your router up to use it fairly easy, other than that I would highly recommend dd-wrt if you have a router that is compatible.

    Hey,

    You could invest in an Apple Airport Express and then configure it to make a 'Guest' wifi connection. Other routers probably have the same functionality, but what this will do is allow you to control the speed they use etc.. In doing so you should also be able to set up monitoring.

    If you can't do it on the router via logs then you need to set up a man in the middle PC with ARP poisoning running.
