    I have a Airport extreme base station and me and five of my room mates split the cost of internet. Someone is using excessive bandwidth, and I was wondering if there is some way or tracking network usage by possibly mac address, or something to figure out whose computer is using all the bandwidth.
    Any ideas?

    thanks!

    Airport has an option to dump logs to a syslog server. You'd have to set one up then parse the traffic logs. Can be painful to set up if you're not pretty savvy.
