Adding a network device



Hi! I have my internal network (192.168.1.*), and your software found every item within that IP range. However, I run a small ISP with IP range 192.168.76.*, and I want to monitor AND log the router bandwidth usage. I currently monitor it through SNMP with "Solarwinds" free bandwidth monitor, but it doesn't log the data. This is the functionality I'm looking for from PRTG.

How can I add my router as a device in the 192.168.76.* range and set a sensor to monitor the bandwidth usage? Thanks!

In order to monitor a different network, you'll need to create a Remote Probe within this network.

Regarding bandwidth monitoring there are multiple different sensors available. You can find a comparison here.
