    that everyone knows and why so long route. just double click the two-computer icon in the taskbar(that shows that net is connected).. but i wanted a program that may calculate it in KBs and MBs as data transfer increases. zone alarm does this but i am using comdo coz i have problem using zone alarm on my comp. i downloaded softperfect traffic meter but in vain, coz instead of calcultaing it stopped my all traffic....LOLzz :D

    Maybe give the NetMeter programme a try.

    netmeter is for monitoring ur internet speed and not for monitoring amount of data transfer (that is download/upload limit).

    Below are some of the features of NetMeter.

    NetMeter is a customizable network bandwidth monitoring program for Windows.


    Totals Reports
    Projected bandwith use
    Daily Reports
    Weekly Reports
    Monthly Reports
    Custom Graphs and Fonts
    Traffic Volume Notification

    I`ve just installed it myself and it does show you your upload and download totals.

    Regards Howard :)

    I'm glad to see you've solved the problem but for future info. there are 1024 KB to a MB. so 1024 bytes to a Kb and 1024 KB to a MB, 1024 MB to a GB and so on. also if your internet ISP says you have 128 kbit, that meank you will devide that # by 8 the size of a byte. a bit is basicly a 1 or a 0. there are 8 bits to a byte. sepped is usually refrenced as bits per second NOT bytes per second. its really anoying. same goes for networking, 10/100/1000(gigaBIT) goes in bits per second. so devide those #'s by 8 and you will find you very close actual speed.

    Just for some extra knowlage you might be able to use.
