Router / Firewall

By brandon-harris ·
I am looking for a relative inexpensive router or firewall to monitor all instant messaging on our network. Funding is tight and if anyone knows of any affordable hardware that would be great. I have tried different software to monitor the instant messages but it doesnt seem to be successful on remote computers.

Thanks in advance,

can you elaborate on what your network consists of? does it not already have a firewall? it can definitely be done one way or another.

Our network consist of 10 computer nodes, a hub, buffalo wireless router, and the cable modem from the ISP. Its a simple setup as you can see.

I tried the software route but I beleive that the wireless router is preventing me from using the software to monitor the network. Is there something that I can change in the wireless router to fix this?
