Hello. I have a Belkin N600 DB router but I would like to get a router that can monitor data usage on my entire network. I use Networx but that only shows data used on my pc.

Hello Randy, We do not recommend any third party equipment. However, we have a link that to several router companies .  See the article link.  I hope this helps.

Rustytrucker, I have been using ASUS routers for several years, as do many others here on this forum. These routers have very good traffic monitoring software built in, and are reasonably priced, in the $100 to $200 range. The router agrees with the Exede meter very closely.

Thanks Steve. I will look into the ASUS. Do all of them have traffic monitoring software?

There is a third party firmware available for certain Asus routers that enhances some functions including the Traffic Analyzer.

Here is a list of those Asus models:

I have a Asus RT-AC3100

It allows you to track usage in several ways including:

 usage per day per device:


Statistics and hours of activity overall:





Program/process usage details and hours of occurrence for an individual device:


All of the Asus models in the above list will use the asuswrt-merlin firmware and have the user interface shown.
