Network Magic is a program that helps you network all your computers together so you can monitor them with ease. It also doubles as a computer monitoring program. Network Magic lets you know who has been doing what and when they did it on your network. It has a really nice network reporting feature that gives you all the details of the computers in your home. The report gives you network traffic statistics, software applications used and websites visited. It also tells you when those websites were visited so if you tell your kids not to be on the computer at certain times, this will let you know if they abided by your rules.
Network Magic was created to help the consumer untangle any network troubles that may arise.
As the adoption rate of home networks continues to grow, so does the disparity between consumers’ technology “know how” and the technical requirements needed to keep their networks up and running.
Most computer users are quick to recognize the benefits of a home network, but only a small percentage have the technical expertise to set up and maintain one.
Simply put, home networking is far too complicated and it rarely “just works” for the average consumer.
The Pure Networks vision is to make home networking easy, secure and useful for the home computer user. They realize this vision by taking a unique, software-only approach to the problem.
Network Magic, which consists of 2 new product versions: Network Magic Essentials and Network Magic Pro. Network Magic Essentials and Network Magic Pro enable consumers and small office owners to choose the best package for simplifying their wireless networking needs.

The Network report sends you a daily email, for each computer in your home, showing Web sites visited, specific times a computer was used to surf the Internet, and the software applications used by your computers. Now you can easily tell if your child was using the Internet at 1 a.m. instead of sleeping, or if your daughter was on Facebook.com for 5 hours yesterday. The Network Report is a great way to monitor kids’ computer and Internet activity, especially if you cannot be there all the time to see what they are doing on the Internet!
Network Traffic: Your daily email report includes a graph of the Network Traffic for a computer during the previous day. What this graph tells you is how often that computer was accessing your home network. This could mean time spent on the Internet (which is most likely the case), time spent accessing a shared file from another computer or time spent printing a document to a shared printer. The bars on the graph are not exact numbers but rather are rounded up or down to give the overall picture of the traffic generated by the computer.
Software Application Usage: The Application Usage list shows every software program that was used on a computer during the previous day. It also shows how long each program was running. This is a great way to see if homework is being done, or if computer games or instant messaging is being used instead.
Web Sites Visited: The Internet Explorer Browser History list shows the Web sites visited by the computer during the previous day, helping you understand where your kids are hanging out on the Internet. Are they on Facebook or are they on MTV, this list will let you know.
