    I asked about this a long time ago, might have been here or somewhere else. Either way, I can't remember the results.

    I once again have to watch my bandwidth per month, at least for a little while. And was wondering what was the best free bandwidth monitor out there. Small, simple, easy. Made for Windows 7 if possible.

    I was looking at this, looks kinda nice.

    Depends on if you are monitoring a single PC, wired vs wireless or a network.

    Networx - just about as good as DU meter.

    I also remember seeing a couple of gadgets for Vista/win 7 that will monitor but do not know all the features.

    Wired Network MeterV3

    Wireless Network MeterV3

    So Networx will monitor my network, even if I install it just on my computer?

    Forget if you went with Tomato on your router or not, if so it has built in bandwidth stats.

    I have had the program running for a couple days now, yet the usage stats and other things don't seem to be updating...

    Is there a setting I am forgetting. And no I didn't go with Tomato.
