Problem : My router dosen't have a built-in option to see traffic statistics, so i can't see who is downloading more/less.

Possible solution and doubt : I'm considering to use bettercap to listen my own router, and use wireshark statistics (endpoints menu) to see the real time downloaded packages on each ip conected to my router. Is not beautiful, but is better then nothing.

Possible problem and doubt : I don't know if this (constant listening to my router) would make the router vulnerable to atacks from inside, and outside of the lan. Or even if the router would be slower.

Besides, i aways wanted to learn how to use wireshark, and learn more about it.

What are you thoughts on this ? There is a best solution (besides buying stuff) ?

Best solution? Go somewhere else. This is a forum for woodworking routers.

Curiously, no one actually answered your question; there's a number of pretty computer savy members here.
do everything through google...
they'll track every keystroke and more....

I have to admit that seeing as were called router forums, I can see why a mistake could be easily made .
I almost wonder if it should have been called wood router forums right off the bat to eliminate confusion

Some knots are useful.

When I joined IBM South Africa in 1996, there was a story about a famous salesman who years previously had sold a busload of the IBM golfball typewriters to one of the banks. As always, there was some dear lady who felt the need to exercise control of her own patch. She would not accept the new machine - said it was too fast, and jammed as a result (the one thing the golfball typewriters could not do was jam). The salesman in exemplary style did not argue with her. Instead, he “customised” the machine to her typing speed, by choking down the power supply by tying an elaborate knot in the power cord, at varying points along the length, until he found just the right spot.
She was a happy convert, and years later when her office was re-arranged, she threatened the movers with doom if they messed with the knot on her power cord.
