    Probably the most useful bandwidth monitor I have found and its free! :D
    You can also set ISP daily/monthly download limits and it will alert you when you reach them.

    Yeh you can. Also you can start the "StopWatch" feature and it starts counting it all from then on.
    Keeps minimal stats as well.
    FREE registration too (not required)

    You sound like you think they don't already? I would not bet my personal privacy on that assumption. They are already into network viruses installed in printer firmware and printer ID algorithms from a printed page.

    I seem to remember reading something on firewalls also a while back. Usually when there is conjecture on something and all discussion ceases it means the 'national security screws" have been clamped down.

    Doesn't exactly work with home networks, does it? Only monitors the one machine it's installed on.

    adsl dial up interface?
    how does it monitor the activities if people use a router to connect to the internet? i can't see anyway of monitoring such activities/bandwidth consumption unless the software is inside the router itself. the only thing that comes closes to it would be to have a dedicated machine that acts as a server to connect all the clients to the internet. :p
    alternative to that would be the use of a managed switch.

    Why not just monitor your pc's lan activity?

    Thought you boys may like it :D been using it for months now. Was getting the new version and thought I would let the world know ;)

    Difficult to monitor 3-4 separate machines in different locations in the house, especially when I'm unaware of them being used. :)

    Very nice, had previously been using NetStatLive from AnalogX (who make some quite nice networking apps, just for reference), will have to give this a go.

    Though I'd still prefer something at router level to keep track of all machines. :)

    Re: BitMeter 2 - Detects ISP Deep Packet Inspection?

    I notice BitMeter showing a reduction in download speed about once every 8 seconds - Is this an indication of DPI action of my ISP?
    Many thanks.
