  • i thinks its great BT send out emails to let ya know you are nearing your useage allowance, although i have infact been charged for going two months in succession, over my 10gb limit, per month.....yet when i ask for details they cant provide such. im adding a useage monitor as we speak, and possibly the one noted at top of this page! thanks guys!!
    it is all very perplexing with BT! ( im finding im beginning to distrust them!!)
  • Hello, I'm new to this forum and I have read through this thread and still haven't found an answer to my query; so I may as well post it now.

    Is there any way to track a network's internet usage through a Belkin F5D9230UK4 (G+ Mimo)? I'd prefer to do this rather than install NetMeter which I know for a fact if I install it on my sisters computer she will just uninstall it straight away.

    If you can help, thanks so much ;)
  • Yes, I've just started with BT and have had an email saying that I've used 7GB in 9 days. I was previously with Orange on a 2mg allowance and never received warning emails. Don't know whether BT are more sensitive about usuage ... I can't think that I've really used 7gb!
    Is there any way of measuring the output from each individual port from my Homehub 2.0 so I can see where all this bandwidth is going?? I can't afford penalties.
    Thanks:confused:
  • Hi i'm thinking of getting 02 mobile broadband with a 3GB limit - how long would this last do you think - is it a fair amount or would i easily use that in amonth - i mainly check emails, go on facebook etc and other forums.

    I downloaded netmeter yesterday. It does not seem to be monitoring anything after 24hrs os use. The graph pops up but it is blank. Is there something I am missing. I downloaded version 1.1.3. All help appreciated

    Really thanks for the tutorial, it helped me out! Because I always did more bandwidth than my ISP allows me and I paid extra money for that... Really really thank you!

  • Hello...
    Just login to your ISP's website they will tell you the internet usage. By entering information like phone number, bill number etc you will get your internet usage details....

    I gave up on netmeter and downloaded Networx version 4.9.5 instead. Its brilliant been using it for a month now. It can be set up to monitor both peak and off-peak usage. I am extremely pleased :T
