I have 4 24 port switches, of two different companies. I didn't know that they could give me stats. I have 2 Netgear JGS524's and a Connex Cat. 6. Did I understand correctly that it's possible that I might access it via some web-based admin like I do my router?

Even the cheap "web" based switches usually provide some port stats. If you don't have a switch you can get stats from, you'll have to tell us more about how your network is setup and maybe someone can come up with a suggestion.
