GlassWire is a free network security monitoring tool and analyzer that visualizes your network activity on an easy to use graph, alerts you of possible threats, manages your firewall, and more.
GlassWire's network monitor visualizes your current and past network activity by traffic type, application, geographic location, all on a beautiful and easy to understand graph. Go back in time up to 30 days and see what your computer or server was doing in the past. Click the graph to see details of what app or network event caused a spike in network activity.
GlassWire reveals hosts that are known threats, unexpected network system file changes, unusual application changes, ARP spoofing, DNS changes, and alerts you to the problem so you can take action. GlassWire can also remotely monitor and help protect servers or other computers far away. Install GlassWire on your server or remote PC and look out for unexpected threats or problems. If you see unexpected activity you can block it with GlassWire’s firewall.
GlassWire's firewall reveals all your network activity so you can easily see what your computer is doing in the background. GlassWire's firewall shows you what current and past servers your computer is communicating with so you can see potential threats and block them if necessary.

GlassWire doesn't let you use its' firewall functions unless you buy a paid version of it.
It was better because it was free... But its firewall is now paid =(
Free version is useless, they are being dishonest about it, not recommended.
Pretty but, not very good for firewall.
This is a network monitor + firewall with good UI
I've always wanted to have a single app that does both
But it's only a free network monitor + a paid firewall
And it keeps nagging you to buy said firewall
And it keeps crashing and dumping crash files to the desktop...
If Glasswire would have a deskband like Networx, it would be perfect!.. :)
Thanks! I am assuming that by deskband you mean a taskbar 'toolbar'. That's what I loved about NetSpeedMonitor as well. Back to looking for a decent alternative. Let me know if you found something worthwhile.
Unfortunately I haven't found anything else. Still use Networx 5.5.5, which can be downloaded from MajorGeeks, yes, it display's version 6.x, but in the description they say that they serve 5.5.5, which they do. I verified that it is the exact same as my local backup. http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/networx.html
Yeah - I went back to NetWrox 5.5.5 too. It's unbeatable. Now if someone could convince Florian Gilles to update his app we would all be in heaven. Thanks for replying BTW.
Haha. Indeed. I also used NetSpeedMonitor before, and then poof, the site was gone, but still have a backup of the tool. It works without any problems in Windows 10. But indeed, I do like the Networx graph deskband more than I thought I would. Gives some more insight about the past etc. No problems, thank you too :)
NetSpeedMonitor also had an expendable graphic desk band/ toolbar.
Anyways, happy toolkitting!
