      wired and wireless bandwdith monitor

      Does anyone know of a way to monitor the amount of bandwidth that is downloaded/uploaded from both my pc (ethernet) and xbox360 (wireless) ?
      I know there are utilities that can monitor bandwidth on ur pc, but is there something out there that can monitor both?

      I'm not sure there is. I was looking a while ago and never came to a conclusion.

      I'm really surprised that the router doesn't store that info (under the sky firmware) and many of the other isp routers do.

      Unless Sky give us online stats, then I think we're stuck.

      Re: wired and wireless bandwdith monitor

      I've been looking around for bandwidth monitors today as i should be activated on sky within 2 weeks. I've downloaded a few and none of them are giving readings for internet usage only. their all including other traffic. This is leading me to believe i dont have the right adapter on my pc. Do i need some sort of ethernet card or ethernet controller to accurately record internet usage only? If so, are there external products available for the above?

      Cheers.

      I use NetMeter, such a small program that works quietly in the background.
