Who is hogging your WiFi bandwidth

"Who is hogging my WiFi bandwidth?" - maybe you hear that frustrating question over and over again from your users. They are complaining about a slow network and you need to identify the root of the problem.

PRTG Network Monitor helps you determine how much bandwidth your devices and applications are using via WiFi. Depending on your network and hardware, you can use different protocols like SNMP, flow or packet sniffing.

How to check WiFi usage

Most bandwidth and traffic analysis solutions are only able to check WiFi traffic on a single device. For measuring all the traffic in your network, you need to monitor the data directly on your routers. By using the WiFi usage monitor PRTG you get informed about all ingoing and outgoing traffic and see what applications and devices using up your WiFi bandwidth.

Why a WiFi usage monitor is a good idea

These days, many businesses and organizations operate on the "bring your own device" principle. Tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices must however also be granted access to the WiFi network.

Furthermore, laptops are often used for presentations in conference rooms and likewise require an WiFi Internet connection. As a result, WiFi usage monitoring quickly becomes an very important issue for administrators.

Measuring WiFi usage: 3 out of many situations
where PRTG comes in handy

With PRTG's WiFi usage monitor, you'll be able to promptly identify potential bandwidth overloads. React easily before problems occur.



Your co-workers complain that the applications used internally on mobile devices are too slow? Then the problem probably lies with your WiFi bandwidth.

Malfunctions when
backing up

As you know as IT professional, no Sys-Admin can do without backups. In general, backups or database synchronizations require a great deal of bandwidth. By doing this on mobile devices, the amount of WiFi usage of your bandwidth can be just too high - PRTG will let you know.


Problems with large file transfers

Practically every company sends large files. These files also consume a correspondingly high amount of WiFi bandwidth. But bottlenecks lurking in every network slow down transfers.


Here's what WiFi monitoring in PRTG looks like

“Hey Gerald, what would you tell administrators looking to use PRTG to monitor their wireless network?”

“Those looking to combine several monitoring statuses into one can use our Business Process Sensor. With this sensor, several sensors – such as for the router, access points, and other end devices – can be represented under a single, comprehensive sensor status. This means it only takes a quick glance to see if everything is alright.”
