    Question Usage

    Is there a software application (preferably user friendly !) that can monitor internet usage.

    My Web usage has skyrocketed in the last month.

    I leave my 3G novatel card in my laptop on the whole time.

    Thx

    Quite a few. My fav is Netlimiter as it shows you usage per application, so you can see which app is chowing your data.

    Also DUMeter for constant monitoring.

    Didnt read everythign as this is such a long thread, but does anyone know of a usage meter that is suitable for the linksys router? it resets its counter every time you disconnect and (I assume) having several machines linked to the router (none of which are connected all the time) means that installing a "counter" on any one machine wont help.
    Any advice greatfully received.

    @bosun: If nobody else has any better suggestions you might be able to do something with a program called routerstats. You can 'train' it to collect data at regular intervals from any of the router's menus and either graph it or write it to a file if I remember correctly. You should then be able to compile the data into a suitable form. It runs in the background and is compatible with most routers. The idea would be to sample the router's counter on one machine continuously and then identify the combined usage each day and sum these accordingly. The machine doing the sampling would need to be operating shortly before any router reset though.

    Netmeter and Dumeter are great apps. For some reason though I can't seem to get Netmeter to work on my Vista notebook. Anyone else had and solved this problem?

    What about IQonn, not only monitors stats, but battery level, signal strength and controls all online connections like WiFI too. It is a connection manager that lets you travel and automatically detect and use different hardware and different cell companies.

    I'm new to 3G and to this forum and found alot of reliable info here. I downloaded Netlimeter. Works perfect. Better than the dashboard that installs with VMC Lite.

    These guys are really clued up around here.

    Thanks for the help and tips.

    If your device is supported you should check out the MDMA tool (sticky in the MTN forum) as well
    62.15% of South Africans voted in favour of the Nkandla compound and e-tolls.
