    Network Monitor...

    Hi,

    I have seen the network monitor devices but have a question. I have a 4 port netgear router and all the PCs in my house (other than the main sever) connect to the netowrk via wireless.

    Do the plugins support the wireless connections monitoring????

    Regards,

    I believe as long as the PC pulls an IPaddress it will work.

      What do you mean that it pulls an ip address? What do I do to check that?

      Thanks

        Somewhere In your router (software) there is probably an option to view IP assignments. if the wireless PCs are connecting to your network they are getting an IP from the route.

            No that is not what I was referring to. The IPs would be under something called DHCP List or something with DHCP in the title. But you really don't need to worry about this. Unless you have some other method of the PCs connecting to your network, they are almosr certainly using the router and are using DHCP, so the network plugin should work for you.

              To find the IP adress of your PC:
              got to each computer on your network
              click on start - run - type in CMD
              this will give you a DOS window
              type in: ipconfig
              it will output the IP address of your computer.


              this number will determine if your computer is on/off when using the network script, but this will only work if the computer never changes it's IP address, meaning that it is a static IP. If you are using DHCP from your router, this means that the PC is issued a leased amount of time to use that IP and it can change to another IP. If your are using this setup, you will need to use the FULL NAME of the computer instead. You can test this by using the same DOS box above. type in ping and your computer ip address or name

              example:
              ping 192.168.0.100
              ping hs2server
