Hi everyone, i'm new to this, so go easy on me!
I got activated on Sky Mid around 2 weeks ago and had no problems, except for the fact they sent me the wrong account password.
I contacted AOL, who were my temporary dial up provider (while we were wating to get connected on sky) and cancelled. They told us that in the month we were with them, we managed to use 60 GB, which is a hell of a lot. As you know, sky mid is a 40 GB usage allowance. So i wanted to know, is there any way i can check my usage on my sky account, or monitor how much data goes to and from the router, so i can manage the usage accordingly.

Sky would probably say that 2007 is not compatible with their service...
*cough* sorry, couldn't resist

^Yea you're right, my daughter kept it on literally 24/7 for her uni work, i was astonished when the AOL guy said we used 60 GB.
But anyway guys, nobody has answered my question! What can be used to see or monitor my bandwidth?
My old ISP, Tiscali, gave an option in my account called "view internet usage" in which i could see all download and upload usages. Does sky have a similar facility? If not, what programs can i use to monitor all the data going in and out (my daughter uses her laptop wirelessly, my son uses his psp, and i use my desktop, so i need to monitor ALL of these with one program)
