I have recently converted to broadband, and have chosen an ISP who gives me a bandwidth of 2GB per month. I downloaded a freeware bandwidth monitoring program called PRTG Traffic Grapher 4.2, in order to be able to monitor my usage, but this program seems very complicated and needs to be told my IP address. As I do not have a static IP this seems to me to be impossible. I suspect the program is directed towards more professional users. Can anyone please recommend a different freeware download that I can use, which will be simple to use by a non-expert home computer user? I run Windows XP SP2. Thanks.
