    Howdy,

    I have recently got cable and can d/l 2GB a month.... Now I know this a quite a bit but I'm struggling to pay for it as it is so I don't want any suprises at the end of the month....

    Is there a program or a windows feature which can monitor my connection and tell me how much I've D/led??

    Sorry if this has been asked b4 but I did a quick search and couldn't find anything...

    Cheers

    If your ISP hasn't given you any software, try the accounts section on their website. That's about all I can come up with.

    You should be able to log into your account and it should show you there somewhere just how much you have d/l.

    I usually check my account about halfway through the month just to see how I'm travelling, then towards the end of the month I steady myself not to go over the limit (I usually cut it very fine, ya gotta get your monies worth out of them).

    Try a program that I have found called Download Meter. It runs at startup and provides a nice looking transparent graph (if you've got win2k/xp) and monitors your uploads and downloads and also provides a summary and a estimated use for one months usage. I think it also provides a warning when you get close to a amount.

    Hope this helps,

    Here in Aus you have a limit with your plan you pick, they are all different depending on who you provider is, and the charges vary if you go over your limit. With the plan I'm on they charge you an extra .20c per MB that you go over.

    My favorite program to monitor downloads is called DU Meter. It is available at http://www.dumeter.com/

    I am running an old version of it, and the newer versions that are out now have more features, but, my old versioin which is easy to find, does everything I need.

    It has a meter so you can monitor traffic in general:

    It also has a totals counter, which you can reset at whatever interval you choose:

    Another cool feature is the Stopwatch:

    This is a great program, and I would reccomend it to anyone.
