    Can someone recommend a app to monitor bandwidth through my airport express 2? This last week it has gone crazy. I usually use 325 gb a month but this month has jumped over 400 which exceeds my limit.

    If your goal is to see if a neighbor or otherwise unauthorized device is on your network stealing bandwidth, then look in your airport express and figure out what the offending IP is, then block it's mac address.

    If you don't suspect any unauthorized access and you're just looking for an app that can monitor your home to see what is sucking up all the bandwidth then you're in for a job and will need to google the various options. My first hit for "see what devices used the most bandwidth on home network" returned a pretty good article that basically sums up what's involved even if you don't use the software they recommend (as there are plenty of options). http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/monitor-network-watch-bandwidth-networkminer/
