Hello TP-Link

 

 

I wanted to Create C/C++ program to monitor the bandwidth usage of devices connected on my Local Area Network. Do you have any snmp command to query such requests?

 

The idea is I will send any snmp request to the TL-R605 router and reply back to my machine the bandwidth usage of a particular device on the network.

 

Please teach me, this is my email address enzotechcomputersolutions@gmail.com.

@EnzoConqueror .

 

You can utilize standard snmpget command for reading the values of the TL-R605 LAN interface.

You can follow this thread on how to calculate the bandwidth from the absolute values you've read:

You should query the router on port UDP 161 for SNMP.

Here are some more examples for you:

SNMP read/write community is that what you've set in your web management interface:

 

 

Refer to your TL-R605 user guide - Chapter 5 - SNMP to configure the SNMP feature properly and then do the tests.
