    Default Bandwidth meter

    can anyone point me in the direction of a good bandwidth usage meter?

    needs:

    free
    relatively small file (well.... at least below 5 megs or sommat)
    works on XP
    works with Dial Up
    can tell me connection speeds/amount downloaded/amount uploaded/amount of time online etc


    i want to be able to leave it running in a corner of my desktop in a small window, for quick reference etc...

    anyone got/or know of a proggy that does all that and is free?

    cheers

    doughboy - I download like 60 - 80Gb a week!!! and ur there on 21days and 50Gb LMAO!!! DU Meter is GOOD however people ONLY say its good because its VERY simple to use. Nearly all Bandwith meters log or track the ammount u download or upload.

    I have used DU meter several times and i got to say its good the ONLY part of it i like is the output to excel spreadsheet

    ROFL @ both...

    when I had my pent@NET satellite card installed, I was downloading :shock: 58Gb :shock: every 24 hours Trouble is I needed lots of HDD space and lots of blank cds...

    Oh, and lots of time filtering out the crap I didn't want...
