> What you really need is some sort of logging of network activity from each room. This may be available from a proxy server if you have one, or a network gateway or router/switch if you are using one. Hard to say from your question.
> In an extreme pinch, you could attempt on a very low level to log traffic from each room based up on switch port or IP address. In any case, the volume of traffic could be quite large to sift through, when all you are looking for is:
> Did anyone use the Internet from a certain switch port?

> I would look to the proxy server community for products along this end.
